The ultimate freedom feeling can be experienced on the Texel beach. Put on your walking shoes and let the wind blow through your hair during a beach walk along the tide line. Or take off your shoes and let the fine beach sand glide between your toes. The vast beach offers as much peace and quiet or action as you wish. With a length of 30 kilometres the beach has endless possibilities and the changing seasons give the beach many different faces. Each visitor has their own personal favourite part of the beach.
There are different beach entrances, where you will find beach pavilions, among other things. At post 9 (near Den Hoorn) and post 28 (near De Cocksdorp) the beach pavilions are open all year round.
