Tips from a Texel expert for a great holiday: ‘I come here at least four times a year’

To do

All Texel walks have a name. De Bollekamer runs through beautiful dunes with wild ponies. You will also pass a huge bunker with a periscope. If the children don’t feel like a long walk, we do the Sommeltjespad. Sommeltjes are a kind of goblins that turn into a stone at sunrise.

The Sheep Farm is the children’s favorite outing. They have lambs all year round. Who knows, one might just be born.

At De Bonte Belevenis estate, children can make soaps and bake bread, and there are animals, go-karts and trampolines.

To sleep

I would like to go to Camping Loodsmansduin, but it always doesn’t happen.

Dune camping
Campsite De Slufter is a beautiful natural campsite for tents, in the middle of the dunes.

Our family house is located on De Parel, a park where other houses (with garden) are also rented out, which are all different.



Ans is open
On the way to Paal 12 you will find IJs van Ans. When it is open, she hangs farm handkerchiefs in the tree. There are rugs over tree stumps, so you can linger there.

Cakes, Texel biscuits, sandwiches: you will find them at the Turfveld. This forest pavilion is beautifully situated and has a lovely terrace. With a sandbox for the children and many dune paths to run on and off.

Real vacation
At Strandpaviljoen Twaalf you really get away from it all. Enjoy all kinds of appetizers, good vegetarian dishes or a delicious piece of fresh fish with a beautiful view.
