Wonderful times out west in charming Busum

Way out west, in the Walden Sea National Park, you'll find the wonderful village of Busum. Facing the great North Sea, this quaint fishing village is well known for its delicious crabs and shrimps, as well as its windswept beaches, wild sea views, and as the ideal base to go and explore the Wadden Sea National Park. And with so many outdoor activities and nautical-themed attractions to choose from, it's no wonder it's so popular. So book a Busum vacation rental and get ready for a wild time out west.

Somebody get a guitar... it's time for a campfire

What isn't there to do in Busum? Water enthusiasts consider it a great spot for watersports. There's surfing and kitesurfing along the seafront at the Family Lagoon Perlebucht, where you can take a nice dip, have a barbecue or, when the suns goes down, sit around a campfire. In the charming village of Busum, you'll find delightful cafes, restaurants, and pubs. And from the village harbor, you can take a boat tour of Wadden Sea National Park or travel to Heligoland, an inhabited island that lies 30 miles off the coast.

Busum—speaking of all things sea-related

As you'd expect of a seaside village in the Wadden Sea National Park, Busum's main attractions have a lot to do with the sea. The first port of call, if you'll excuse the pun, has to be Busum Sea Worlds, an aquarium with over 130 species of sea life. Down the road, you'll find Busum's most famous landmark, Busum Lighthouse. Built in 1912, this iron-clad building sports a distinctive red and white color scheme. And sticking with the nautical theme, the lighthouse happens to overlook the Museum am Meer, which charts the history of the village's crab fishermen from the 1830s.

Expect to be pleasantly surprised in summer

It's not exactly like the Greek Islands, but then you wouldn't expect anywhere on the North Sea to be, would you. That said, Busum's moderate sea climate means that it experiences some pretty pleasant summers. In July and August, temperatures often reach into the low 70s. It's still relatively warm come September. However it does start to get pretty wet from August onwards, so if you want to experience warm temperatures without the rain, you're best bet is to book a Busum vacation rental in June.

Water, water everywhere, so let's all take a trip

Wadden Sea National Park, in which Busum lies, isn't big, it's really big. It's so big that it spans 3 countries. The German part of the park covers over 1,700 square miles, 68 percent of which is under water (the land element consists mainly of salt marshes). It's an incredibly important habitat, especially for sealife. The many species of molluscs make tasty morsels for bigger species, while fish use the Wadden Sea as a kind of kindergarten. While some species of bird settle permanently in the Wadden Sea, many use it as a winter habitat or as a resting place.
