Bring your dog to Texel

Texel is the perfect holiday destination for anyone who wants to bring their dog. With lots of space and nature. There are many areas on Texel beaches where dogs are allowed to run off the leash (see instructions locally). A nice drink at a pavement café after your walk? Many restaurants and beach pavilions provide a bowl of fresh water for your dog.

The campsite is situated in the widest range of dunes on Texel and, as such, surrounded by nature. No fireworks worries! Simply swap all the fireworks stress for a wonderful trip to Texel!
