Tip from the park manager

‘Take a walk through nature at the campsite and enjoy the views from the viewpoint at ‘De Merel’, one of my favourite spots on the campsite. From the campsite, you can walk straight into the dunes, De Bollenkamer and De Hors. There are so many stunning places on Texel, but my personal favourite really is De Hors: its ruggedness, unspoilt natural beauty and tranquillity make this place truly unique in my eyes.’
