Today's round trip starts in the very west of the island in small village of Utersum.

Nearby Dunsum the way routes up the embankment.

Northern part of the island only serves as protective barrier and is not developed for tourism. The way leads some 18 kilometers mostly paved alongside the sea.

Several hundreds of sheep populate the embankments.

Some of them spending their leisure time at the beach...

In the very east of the island we get to main city of Wyk.

Typical German beach chairs

Scenery changes significantly in the southern part of the island.
