Nes Harbor

There is an interesting live stream on the harbor of the city of Nes, located in the south of Ameland Island in the Netherlands. The Bay of Nes, which you can see well in the webcam, belongs to one of the 17 Wadden Sea ports.

The active life period of the Nes Harbor, well demonstrated by our online camera, is from April 1 to November 1. During low tide, due to the small depth, only small boats are allowed to be used in the harbor.  In the bay, where our live stream is coming from, there are floating docks with electricity, a port service with meteorological information and tide observations, and a sewage system.


Nes village with our live camera is located on the southern side of the Ameland. Despite Nes, there are 3 small villages in the wet lowlands of the island. Nes is the biggest one. Only 1,200 inhabitants live in the city.

The most important attraction of Nes is the old ship “Holwerd” ("Commander's House" (Commandeurshuizen)), located in the very center of the town. This amazing village combines beautiful old captain's houses and modern shops.

The city in our live stream is not boring at all. It is especially pleasant to stroll through the old town, even after the restoration preserving the Middle Ages spirit. The center of the old village was built around a separate church tower.
