The weather

Are you a sun worshipper and are you wondering where in the Netherlands the sun shines the most? We advice you to spend your holiday on Texel!

The most sunshine on Texel

On the Waddenislands, the sun shines the most in our country. Texel has on average 2046 sun hours per year, the east part of the country only has 1500 sun hours. The main difference is during spring and early summer. Do you also opt for a sunny stay on Texel?

Why does the sun shine the most over Texel?

Because there are mainly westerly winds, the clouds are easily chased from the relatively narrow coast line. The statistics say that May is the sunniest month in the Netherlands.

Sunniest place of the Netherlands

The largest chance you have on sun shine is at the ferry between Den Helder and Texel. Statistics from the KNMI show that the south point of Texel and the north point of North- Holland have the most sun hours. The relatively cold seawater makes that, especially in spring, less clouds develop , while in the inland cumulus clouds appear.
