Texel is an ideal holiday destination with a dog. There is plenty of space and nature. Dogs are allowed to run free on many parts of Texel's beaches (see instructions on site). Want to grab a terrace after a walk? Many restaurants and beach pavilions have a drinking bowl with fresh water ready for your dog.


Camping with your dog on Texel

Taking your dog to a campsite on Texel? There are many different dogfriendly campings on Texel. For example, camping Loodsmansduin is surrounded by woods and is therefore the perfect place for long walks with your dog.
