Going to the southern most end of island is comfortable in a wagon when with small children and cold outside. In Summer walking to Willems duin is better nature option. Some more commentary during trip would be welcome. Tour taken around 2 1/2 to 3...More

This is a great way to see the side of the island that is otherwise forbidden for visitors. The whole trip takes about two hours, including 30 minutes to walk around when you're there. Bring binoculars and you will likely see seals in the distance!

I like to see the endless beaches on Schiermonnikoog, never seen something like there. And it's fun to see the seehounds across the beach sleaping in the sun.
