Description

On the southern tip of the island of Rømø you find many hectares of unbridled Wadden Sea salt marsh and beach meadow. This kind of natural beach meadow is a rarity in the Wadden Sea. Wading birds galore. Especially in spring and late summer/autumn. If you take a look at the tide tables and wait for high tide the birds are closer to the shore (see the link below for tide table).

Details

Access

There is a dam built across the Wadden Sea that connects the island to the mainland. There is a parking lot at the end of Rimmevej, just before Stormengevej. Click on the P in the map to get directions.

Beware of high tide before venturing outside the dike. The round trip is about 3 km, but if you are up for more you can follow the dike towards Havneby. Lots of birds on the mudflats there too.
