De Texelse kust
The entire west coast of Texel is made up of beach with a total length of 30 kilometers. The wide sandy beaches are protected by naturally formed sand dunes. The Texel coast is known to be particularly clean. In May 2011, four of the Texel beaches were again awarded theBlue Flag quality certificate. The Blue Flag is an international symbol for clean beaches with adequate facilities and appropriate access.
Recreational options on the Texel coast
The coast line lends itself perfectly to long strolls on the beach. You are likely to find many shells, glacial erratics and flint stones along the coast of the island of Texel. Participate in one of the beach or cross country runs, ride a horse or fly a kite. Sunbathing is a popular pastime anywhere on the Texel coast; tranquil spots are plentiful. The beach is an ideal, natural playground for children. Try one of the new exciting sports activities, or go for a safe swim in the sea.
During the summer months, on many of the Texel beaches liffe guards are keeping an eye out. Swimming is permitted nearly everywhere on the western, North Sea side of the island. The only exception is the sea around the lighthouse, in the northern most part of the island, between ‘Paal 31' and ‘Paal 33'. Due to strong currents around the point, the sea is unsafe for swimming.
Fishing is free without a license along the entire Texel coast, provided not more than two rods are used. Recreational catamaran sailing is permitted off beach accesses ‘Paal 12', ‘Paal 15', ‘Paal 17' and ‘Paal 33'. ‘Paal 33' is also the base of a sailing school. Texel's busy diving club welcomes tourists as well as members.
