The forester takes you along the beach and through the drifting dunes. Both beach finds and the development of the dunes are covered! An excursion for the whole family.
Terschelling has one of the widest beaches in the Netherlands and the highest dunes in Wadden. Huge amounts of sand grow on the island and drift into the dunes via the beach. In the drifting dunes between Paal 16 and Paal 20, the sand drifts even further, which results in extensive drifting plains and at the same time dunes as high as 30 meters. No walk is the same, because the landscape is always moving. The drifting sand provides exceptional plants and animals. The landscape is full of stories, such as the old dune grasslands and bunkers that have slowly disappeared under the sand and reappear. Did you know that the dunes used to be 400 meters north, where the surf is now?
