If you put your head above the dike in our village Paesens you can see Schiermonnikoog (straigt ahead) en Ameland (to your left)
For a day out to Schiermonnikoog you can take the ferry from Lauwersoog. When visiting Ameland you should take the ferry from Holwerd.
Both Islands offer enough for a great day trip. Beautiful scenery, beaches, wonderful restaurants and shops. For young and old year-round events and attractions.
