Travelogue "Texel" in May 2007, September 2008 & 2015

In 2007, we elected the Wadden island of Texel as a destination where we stayed about 5 days in the village of De Koog, centrally located on the island, along the North Sea coast. Here is the beautiful hotel Tesselhof . The following year we visited the same island, but stayed at the Hotel & Apartments complex The Swallow .


From Belgium, are you already in Den Helder, where you take the ferry to some 3 hours Texel . The distance from Antwerp ± 240 Km.


The island
Texel is one of the Wadden Islands where it is very nice and quiet to stay. Certainly walkers and cyclists come here for sure their money, but also those who like sunbathing, swimming, surfing, etc. You will find kilometers of cycle paths or paved roads along the coast or through the dunes. Also several nature reserves are scattered about the island. On the north side of the island lies the village of De Cocksdorp, where the lighthouse stands.


On the website of VVV Texel you will find all necessary information for your stay on this island. For the ferry is no reservation needed for the ships have double decks and sail every half hour.
