Real islands? Is it referring to natural islands against artificial ones?

The wadden islands are surrounded by water at high tide, at low tide though, at least for some of them, you can walk from the mainland to them. You could argue that at that point they are connected to the mainland and that they then are no longer islands. Though I wouldn't look at it too literally.
