Poel is an island on the Baltic Sea of Germany. Found in the very north of the country, it is connected to the mainland by a causeway, meaning you can even reach it by car. One could easily make a day-trip to the island from Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, but there is so much on offer here that it's worth renting a Poel Island holiday home for a longer stay to discover all the wonders of this island. Kirchdorf and Oertzenhof are the main towns on the island, with Timmendorf also worth a visit, where the one of the most notable buildings of the island can be found, the lighthouse. Poel Island holiday rentals will give tourists the chance to make the most of clean fresh air and really get away from it all. Poel Island is sparsely populated and there is little pollution so it's ideal for a country getaway and for walkers and hikers. A lot of the land here is simply used as farmland.
