Welcome to Vlieland
Historically the most isolated of the islands, and the least visited, Vlieland is a windswept and wild place, but this is part of its charm. The ferry arrives at the sole town, Oost Vlieland, at the east end of the island and ringed by forest. It's where you'll find all hotels, restaurants and services. The west end of the island is a sandy wasteland at the mercy of the sea, parts of which are used by the military.
