The North Sea averages about 100 m. The beaches and coastal waters of the North Sea
are popular destinations for tourists. The Dutch coasts are especially
developed for tourism. Windsurfing and sailing are popular sports
because of the winds. Because of the strong tides and areas of still
water, the North Sea is more difficult to sail than the Baltic or the
Mediterranean. Mudflat hiking, recreational fishing, and diving,
including wreck diving, are all possible.
The climatic conditions on the North Sea coast are thought to be especially healthful. As early as the 19th century travellers used their stays on the North Sea coast as curative and restorative vacations . The sea air, temperature, wind, water, and sunshine are counted among the beneficial conditions that are said to activate the body's defences, improve circulation, strengthen the immune system, and have healing effects on the skin ;-)
I was lucky to catch this boy and girl running into the North sea
during sunset at 22:00 with a sea surface temperature around 18.5 ˚C.
It must have been romantic and
so refreshing for them ;-)
De Noordzee is een randzee van de Atlantische Oceaan in Noordwest-Europa, met een gemiddelde diepte van 100 meter. De temperatuur ligt gemiddeld tussen 18 °C ‘s zomers en 1 °C ‘s winters. De temperatuur varieert daarbij sterk, afhankelijk van de waterdiepte en de stroming vanuit de Atlantische Oceaan.
I'm off to the beach.....again
