Beach
“Helgoland is divided into a mixed area where swimwear is compulsory, and men- and women-only areas where it is not. The pool in the mixed area is 35m; the others are 25m. Much of its charm lies in the history, and as the water is quite deep and Helgoland has no diving boards, it is also usually very quiet. So, if you like a peaceful swim without many children about, this is a good place to go. ”
