Credits Lonely Planet:

The crescent of islands over Friesland – Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland and Schiermonnikoog – form a unique natural entity and a distinct region of the Netherlands. A natural barrier between the Frisian coast and the open North Sea, they hem in the mudflats of the Waddenzee, a region that was added to the Unesco World Heritage list in 2009. Accordingly, all of the elongated islands have a dual character: villages, polders and salt marshes on the Waddenzee side, broad swaths of beach and dunes on the seaward side, with the two separated by areas of woods and heath.
Populated for at least a thousand years, the remote islands have frequently fallen victim to the whims of nature as the sea washed towns off the map and shifting sands altered the terrain. Challenging as it was to live off the land, inhabitants turned to fishing and whaling for their livelihoods. Since World War II, tourism has been the mainstay, and Dutch and German holidaymakers flock here in the warmer months. Though the proportion of wilderness to tourism development varies from one island to the next, with Schiermonnikoog being the wildest and Terschelling the most developed, all have ample space for getting close to nature and beachcombing. Each of the islands is crisscrossed with hiking and cycling trails, and throughout the Waddenzee you'll see opportunities to go wadlopen (mudflat walking).

With the huge influx of tourists in the summertime (populations routinely multiply tenfold on warm weekends) it can get crowded, so try to make arrangements in advance. Among the myriad accommodation options are hotels, B&Bs and cottages, and there are plenty of campsites.
