The Netherlands is located by the sea, and has a recorded coastline length of over 450 km.
There are some beautiful beaches like Scheveningen or Zandvoort, but not everybody is aware of the overwhelming beauty of the islands which exist in the north of the Netherlands.
The Wadden Islands (also called the Frisian Islands) are an amazing destination within the country and a great spot for a romantic getaway. Separated by a very shallow sea, which recedes during low tide, Terschelling, Texel, Schiermonnikoog, Vlieland and Ameland constitute an environmentally protected UNESCO World Heritage area.
The Netherlands is a very small country which means that the beach is always near by.. From north to south is 300 km length and from east to west 200 km.
