The climate of Ameland (the Netherlands)
Ameland is one of the West Frisian Islands. Ameland is, counted from the west, the fourth inhabited Dutch island. The most important villages on the island are Hollum, Ballum, Nes and Buren. During the 17th and 18th centuries the main source of income was whale hunting. Nowadays the main source of income is tourism. Tourists come here to enjoy the scenery and the peace and quiet. The island can be reached by ferry from Holwerd. On the island itself you depend on the bus, taxi or bicycle for transportation. You may bring your car to Ameland but this is very expensive. Ameland has a sea climate strongly influenced by the wind. Clouds dissolve rapidly; Ameland doesnít get much rain. During the autumn and winter the weather may be very bleak. During the autumn the warm sea causes a lot of rainfall. During the summer it is more pleasant here on warm days than in other places in the Netherlands because of a cooling sea breeze.
