Strand was an island on the west coast of Nordfriesland in the Duchy of Schleswig, which was a fiefdom of the Danish crown. Now, the area belongs to Schleswig-Holstein in northern Germany.
The island was formed by the Grote Mandrenke, a huge storm tide that occurred on January 16, 1362. Many villages and towns along the Danish coast, such as Rungholt, were lost. The island of Südfall was separated from the mainland.
