  • To the elbow you should do a bike ride Sylt holidays. The unique view on the tip of the elbow invites you to linger longer on the beach. In good weather a beautiful experience to watch the many kite-surfing.

  • Stunning how many kites without sinking in the Bay are on the way. The elbow is a beautiful landscape, the Western beach is great for swimming, too dangerous but for a walk since not much is going on.

  • Sondersgleichen a natural spectacle. Lots of sand, Sun and nature. I forgot about the wind, but he's always on.
