Texel’s most beautiful nature spots

Nature on Texel

Beach, dunes, salt marshes, woods & polders

Texel is sometimes referred to as the Netherlands in miniature. An apt label, thanks to its rich variety of landscapes. Long beaches, vast dune areas, but also woods and polders. Very special are the wet dune valleys and salt marshes. Also unique are the island’s flora and fauna. From millions of wild orchids in June to the sea lavender that colours De Slufter purple in July and August. And, of course, the many birds on the island. A real treat for birdwatchers!

Nature conservation on Texel

De Krim Texel is inextricably linked to the island and nature on Texel. We see that Texel is also vulnerable. There are various organisations on Texel that care for nature and make it possible for all of us to enjoy it. That’s why we work closely together with nature conservation organisations Natuurmonumenten, De Waddenvereniging and De Vogelbescherming.

Go on a Wadden Sea tour

A visit to Texel is not complete without a Wadden Sea tour.
The Waddenvereniging (The Wadden Society) organises various excursions almost every day during the summer months. These include Wadden Sea tours, trawler trips, dawn excursions, children’s beach days and Wadden tasting events. 


More info about excursions by the Waddenvereniging on the Wadden island of Texel.

Viewpoints in the nature of Texel

Viewpoint Bertusnol The Bertusnol is one of the highest dunes on Texel. Climbing the stairs, also called 'the Texel staircase to heaven', is rewarded with a magnificent view. View the location here.
Viewpoint Horsmeertjes Everyone prefers to keep this place to themselves, it can be so quiet here. The valley between two rows of dunes is known for its spoonbill colony during the breeding season. View the location here.
Viewpoint Bunker Den Hoorn The second highest dune is the bunker of Den Hoorn as part of the former Atlantic Wall. View the location here.
Viewpoint Prins Hendrikzanddijk A viewpoint over a new piece of Texel is the Prins Hendrikzanddijk. This area has been constructed to stop the rising seawater and to protect Texel. View the location here.
Fountain viewpoint The Fonteinsnol is one of the most famous vantage points on Texel. Climb the wood tower and enjoy a beautiful view over the treetops of the pine forest. View the location here.

Texel’s unique flora and fauna

The saltwater conditions on Texel have given rise to unique flora and fauna, with sea lavender growing in nature reserves De Slufter and De Muy, for example. In June, millions of wild orchids bloom on Texel. Very rare elsewhere in the Netherlands, these wild orchids grow abundantly in the Texel countryside. 

The most beautiful nature reserve of the Netherlands

In 2016, the Dutch Wadden were voted the most beautiful nature reserve in the Netherlands by the Dutch people. This video accompanied the competition entry and shows just how beautiful the Texel Wadden really are.
