A salty sea breeze blowing through your hair, wide landscapes with grazing sheep and seven characteristic villages… That is Texel. For those looking for that wonderful holiday feeling in the Netherlands, Texel is the place to be. The largest Dutch Wadden Island borders the North Sea and the Wadden Sea and is a perfect holiday destination for every erveryone with its 30 kilometers long sandy beach. With a stay in a comfortable accommodation at EuroParcs De Koog you have a great base from which to explore this diverse island in detail!
On Texel you can completely relax by walking and cycling through the beautiful nature. The great variety of landscapes on the island will surprise you: within short distances from the National Park Dunes of Texel on the long coast and you can be in the green forests or in the polder in no time. Texel has many beautiful routes for both young and old and for novice and experienced cyclists and for walkers. The Texel flora is not the only thing that will inspire you, because in Ecomare you can learn everything about the special animal species that live on the island and in the sea. Would you rather look for the animals yourself? Discover and spot the many bird species in De Schorren Nature Reserve.
When you discover the culture of Texel, you will notice that it is very special in lots of ways. Especially because the seven villages of Texel all have their own character and face. The largest of these is Den Burg and is therefore also seen as the 'capital' of the Wadden Island. Nice shops, historic buildings, good restaurants… you will find everything for a nice day out. Discover the rich history and maritime past of Texel with the whole family in Beachcombersmuseum Flora. The literal and figurative highlight of Texel is a visit to the Texel lighthouse, from which you have a view of the Wadden Sea and even Vlieland and Den Helder during clear weather. But what you really shouldn't miss is the taste of Texel's pride: the award-winning Texel beer! Discover the story behind this traditionally brewed beer in Texel's brewery, which is located in the former dairy factory of Oudeschild.
