To the north of the country, between the North Sea and the Wadden sea, stretch the islands of Wadden, a natural region of exceptional beauty which includes five inhabited islands. Texel , the largest, belongs to the province of Noord Holland while Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland and Schiermonnikoog are Frisian. Other small islands and sand banks such as Griend (Bird island) and the islands of Rottumeroog and Rottumerplaat also form part of it.
