The Wadden Sea islands Fanø and Mandø

From the top of the dike at the Wadden Sea, you can look out towards Fanø and in good weather you can also see Mandø. Together with Rømø further south and Langli further north, these two islands form the border between the Wadden Sea and North Sea. The islands are known as ’the barrier islands’.

You can only get to Mandø at low tide. The island is a paradise for bird lovers and a great place to see migrating birds from the autumn and spring. You can also experience the wonderful silence and darkness of night or maybe the rough weather of an autumnal storm.

Check the tides on DMI’s website before you set off:


Further information: 




Fanø is an old skipper island and this is reflected in both the architecture of the two towns Nordby and Sønderho, as well as in the island's culture and music scene. The island offers a rich nature with both heaths and salt marshes, not to mention the kilometre-wide sandy beach by the North Sea.

Furthermore, the island has many cosy restaurants.

You can sail to the island from Esbjerg Port.
