A white expanse
On Sylt, the sea always puts its best foot forward — regardless whether you’ve got your feet in the sand or in rubber boots. Whether you’re simply looking for a little peace and quiet, or a nice spot for the family, this unique North Sea island has the right beach for everyone, including beaches for nudists and dog owners — and, of course, the right roofed wicker beach chair for every type of sun worshipper.
Its western side offers a total of 40 kilometres of fine sandy beaches. It’s the perfect terrain for children’s sand castles, and the ideal relaxation zone for parents. Find out for yourself where you feel most at home on the island. There’s plenty of room, for example on the beaches of List, Kampen, Wenningstedt, Westerland or Hörnum. The only place you shouldn't go swimming is on the List "Ellenbogen." The currents there are simply too dangerous. Instead, it’s worth taking a long walk around the sandspit, past both of List's lighthouses.
Your hosts will gladly provide you with more information on Sylt's beaches.
