Texel is the largest Wadden island in the Netherlands. The island is on average 8 km wide and 20 km long and therefore has an area of approximately 170 km². Texel has fantastic beaches. More than 30 kilometers of white sandy beach is waiting for you! Take a lovely walk on the beach, let the wind blow through your hair or enjoy the sun. Every season the Texel beach has its own face, but it is always enjoyable.
Beach surveillance is deployed on a large number of beach strokes on Texel in the summer. Well-trained lifeguards ensure that you can safely swim in the marked areas.
