Disabled friendly holidays on Texel

Accessible holidays on Texel


Looking for a disabled friendly holiday destination? Texel has various facilities that enable visitors with a disability to enjoy this special island to the max. Explore nature, hit the beach, go for a swim or a lovely bike ride on an adapted bike!

To the beach

It can often be quite hard for people with a disability to access the beach. To make things easier, special facilities are provided (in the summer) on the beach on Texel e.g. the provision of a concrete beach path in various locations that runs right up to the high-tide line.

Hit the beach in a special wheelchair

Beach wheelchairs with extra wide tyres are available for free at beach pavilions (they can’t be moved independently). Want to go exploring by yourself? Hire a CadWeazle at Paal 17 or 28: an off-road wheelchair with a quiet, powerful electric motor.

Explore nature

Many of our guests visit Texel for its unique natural beauty. Fortunately, several nature reserves and footpaths are also easily accessible by wheelchair.

Adapted holiday home or hotel room

An adapted holiday home makes for a wonderful, relaxed holiday. At De Krim Texel, you have a choice of several adapted bungalows and apartments. Will you be staying at the fun-filled Holiday Park De Krim in De Cocksdorp? Maybe a small-scale, quiet park instead? Then Bungalow Park ’t Hoogelandt or Residentie Californië may be just what you are looking for! Or do you prefer a hotel? Book an adapted hotel room at Hotel Molenbos.
