A special area

De Hors

Explore the beautiful area located at the southern tip of Texel. This nature reserve is special because only in this area new dunes are still being created. Its ruggedness gives it a desert-like character. The rare little terns brood every year on the bare sandy plain. Seals, bluethroats and warblers can also be seen here.
