Pearl of the North Sea
On this Pearl of the North Sea you'll relax very easily while sitting in one of the famous beach baskets, sipping on a nice glass of Chardonnay and wondering, why back at home everybody is so stressed!
No other island in the world offers as many top restaurants, run by world class chef cooks, such as the Island of Sylt!
Most of the restaurants buy their food from local producers, of course everything organic. Try the local Galaway Beef, excellent seafood dishes or crispy local duck.
It is rumoured that this Island is for snobs, but in fact (maybe despite of the Strönwai Kampen) it's just a very down to earth island with many proud natives.
Everybody relaxes very fast on these shores indeed!
- sit in a famous beach basket and breathe the fresh air!
- visit idyllic Keitum and the Tee Kontur
- stroll along the Strönwai in epansive Kampen
- go to the most famous beach Restaurant Sansibar
- visit List and get lunch at Gosch or Austernmeyer
- go to the beach Restaurant Wonneymer and don't get afraid if you see many naked People ...it's FKK...
- we love Rantum, because it looks like a Hobbit village!

Strandoase - Westerland
This is one of the real gems in Sylt!
It has got a great location, on top of the dunes by overlooking the North Sea. Good seafood, the house specialty is a very crispy duck from the island of Sylt! The service from the very charming Wibke is very attentive, so you want to eat here more than once.
Yes, sometimes a fresh breeze from the North Sea, a beautiful sunset and a good glass of wine is enough , to put someone in heaven!
Wonnemeyer - List
The old classic beach restaurant Wonnemeyer Wenningstedt moved up to List, but the new location lays also right at the beach.
No FKK beach anymore in front, which means no naked people running around, but still a very lively atmosphere!
The menu features Galloway Rib Eye Steak, seafood dishes, nearly everything comes from the region , 50% are organics.
This family owned restaurant has got still a lot of charme. You must absolutely try the fresh sole from the north sea, it doesn't get any better!
