The beach

At these beaches there are nice pavilions and you can rent beach beds and umbrellas. You can also enjoy a drink and a snack in the beach pavilions in the autumn.

Adventurous Texel

Surrounded by the sea, there are of course plenty of opportunities to (learn to) surf! There are activities for adults and children. For example, go surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing or supping.

A challenging mountain bike path has been constructed in the De Dennen forest. From the hotel you can cycle to the route in a few minutes. Race it!

For the real daredevil it is also possible to parachute. At the Paracentrum Texel you can, for example, make a tandem jump or a scenic flight over the island. An unforgettable experience above Texel!

De Slufter, a unique area that is openly connected to the North Sea


Texel is known for its nature and the variation in landscape, which is why it is often referred to as “the Netherlands in miniature”. Explore, for example, De Slufter, a unique area that is openly connected to the North Sea, or go to forest “De Dennen” and enjoy the view of the Fonteinsnol.

Lots of things to do!

Care for something else than walking and cycling? There are several riding stables on Texel, so you can also explore the forest on horseback. For advanced riders it is also possible to take a beach ride!

Prefer something a little quieter? A covered wagon ride through the Slufter is also possible.

Texel nature

There are also opportunities to explore nature for guests with walking difficulties. There are several hiking trails and viewpoints suitable for wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

Ecomare organizes great excursions through the various nature reserves.
