Think of white and sandy (or silty!) beaches, expensive spas, and windy campsites - that's Sylt. It is one of its kind island and an elegant one by all means. I was visiting with a purpose to camp on one of those sand dunes, so I didn't explore its expensive indulgences. All said, amidst the wind and rain I was embraced by, Sylt has one of the most beautiful and long beaches I've ever seen.
