Between Rømø and Fanø, you will find the small island of Mandø, which today only has around 40 inhabitants. Here, it is the tide that determines when the island can be visited. So the island is only accessible via Låningsvejen, a rough gravel road that can only be used at low tide. In contrast to the larger islands of Rømø and Fanø, the scenery on Mandø is a lot more uniform in character. The landscape is dominated by open marshland and there are only a few trees here and there. Mandø is a cosy little island, rich in wildlife, especially migratory birds. If you don't want to pit your wits against the tides, you can take the bus to Mandø, which leaves from the Wadden Sea Centre in Vester Vedsted. As Mandø is a small island, DanCenter has only a few holiday homes for rent.
