Getting There

Holandsmelen ist der Name dieses einsamen Berges, der einen großartigen Ausblick über die Umgebung bietet. Diese mittelschwere Wanderung ist zwar noch für alle Altersklassen geeignet, kann jedoch für neue Wanderer oder solche, die nicht gut trainiert sind, eine Herausforderung darstellen.

Nice easy to moderate hike. Good views of the surrounding area and beach. There are better views to the far south of the island, but a nice hike for the relative easiness. A lot of flies in the summer.

First to Review

This trail has a bit of a multiple personality disorder going on. The start of it is through a wooded area, which then turns into crossing a boggy bit of land, before finally ascending the mountain which has a bit of a rocky scramble at the top. This trail is largely unmarked, and a bunch of footpaths go off in every direction at different points. I actually got lost after reach the top and made my way back down the wrong side of the mountain, where I had to cross a wire fence to get back to the main road. At the start, you'll park alongside the main road - Google Maps has the area listed as Holandsmelen Parking. From there, you'll pass through a gate that makes it seem like someone's property, but that's the right path. The middle and end of this trail is rather exposed, so keep that in mind and don't forget your sunscreen. This trail has a big payoff, though, with wonderful 360 degree views. Holandsmelen is a lone mountain in this area, so it offers a great view of all the surrounding flatlands, including a great view of some beautiful beaches.
