Cottages in Ameland
A holiday home on Ameland means a holiday in the middle of nature. When the weather is nice, you can also relax on the beautiful sandy beaches on the north coast of Ameland.
Ameland is one of the five large Dutch Wadden Islands. Your stay in a holiday home on this Wadden Island starts with a fresh boat trip from Holwerd to the town of Nes on Ameland. Nes is one of the four villages on the island; from west to east they are Hollum, Ballum, Nes and Buren. The island has less than 4,000 inhabitants. The landscape layout on Ameland is comparable to the other Wadden Islands. In the south you will mainly encounter polders from your cottage, while the north half of Ameland consists of dunes. The south coast is protected from the Wadden Sea by the sea dyke; in the north, the dunes are already a natural protection. Tidal flats can only be found on the south side. The North Sea lies to the north of the Wadden Islands.
The dune area has an alternation of woods, richly vegetated dunes, wet valleys and sandy sprays. The Hollumerbos and Kwekerijbos are some of the old forests that you can see from your cottage. The easternmost quarter of Ameland consists of unspoiled nature. The Oerd and Hon consist of sandy dunes and salt marshes, which have a great attraction to plants and animals. The island is very rich in birds. During a stay in your holiday home you can see dozens of bird species, including the marsh harrier, spoonbill and eider duck.
