Timmendorf is part of the municipality of Insel Poel on the Baltic Sea island of the same name in the district of Nordwestmecklenburg in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Timmendorf lies on the west coast of the island of Poel and is divided into the villages of Timmendorf and Timmendorf Strand, which are about a kilometre from one another. A prominent landmark in Timmendorf Strand and sea mark for the navigation of shipping in the Bay of Wismar is Timmendorf Lighthouse. A little to the north of the lighthouse there is a pilot's house with a tower. The settlement has a one-kilometre-long sandy beach and a small harbour in which sports boats, fishing vessels and a pilot boat are moored. The tourist infrastructure includes various holiday apartments, a large campsite and several restaurants. In summer the beach of Timmendorf Strand is packed with visiting bathers and the harbour of Timmendorf is full of yachts.[1]
