Mecklenburg-Vorpommern  >  Germany

The Beach of Wampen near Greifswald is a natural beach, that is also used for swimming in the Baltic. It also provides wind-dependent mudflats.

Added by Thiemo Karwinkel

Description

The beach itself is already worth to visit, as it is nearly natural and not touristy used. Anyway, there are always a few people around, especially in the summertime. From the dike of the "Spülfeld" above the beach you have a wonderful view on the Baltic sea, especially on the wind-dependent mudflats and on the "Kooser See", which is a shallow bay north of the area. In the summertime you can enjoy swimming after birding!

Nice birds like Greater ScaupBar-tailed Godwit and White-tailed Eagle can be seen here.

Details
