Wadden Sea, located on the North Sea along the coasts of Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands, is the largest continuous system of mud flats and sand in the world. The flood waters, which warm up quickly in the summer, bring rich nutrients to the land twice a day, providing a great source of food for an abundance of life.

Each day visitors can walk on the seabed’s where water once was as the floods recede back into the sea. Around 50 islands are on the coast in this area, each with a unique feel.
