Most people go to Texel to visit the beach, fortunately you can find the beach only 2Km from the bungalow. De other surrounding nature is stunning as well, also within 2Km you can find ”De Slufter”, a breeding area for birds which is also beautiful during winter. Other than that you can enjoy a great bicycle ride and across the entire island, a walk to the lighthouse from the bungalow is done in an instant. At the beach pavilion you have a wonderful view over the beach and North sea and the Dutch inland sea. This is also the point from where ”De Vriendschap” departs, a ferry with which you can visit nearby Vlieland for a day.
Some fun family activities on the island are Ecomare, the beermuseum, the aviation- and war museum, de Zelfpluktuin en the port of Oudeschild where you can enjoy some great fish. Oudeschild is also the place where you can catch a boat to go seal spotting.
