Activities for children
Texel is a paradise for children - there is fun to be had everywhere! They can go looking for hidden treasure on the beach or exploring in the Texel woods. Have your children already met the Sommeltjes? These mysterious creatures dance in the moonlight but perhaps you'll spot them if you explore the Sommeltjespad.
Even if the weather is bad, there is plenty to do on Texel. How about a trip to Ecomare, where you can meet the seals face-to-face or watch the sea birds? The Water Hall has lots of challenges and fun facts about the Wadden Sea region and the North Sea. In the summer, there are extra activities for children.
A trip on a shrimp trawler or round-trip boat is highly recommended. There are several options for this in Oudeschild and near De Cocksdorp.
If the kids need to let off steam, why not take them climbing at Klimpark Texel in De Cocksdorp where they can scramble and clamber a few metres off the ground? The very young will have lots of fun at the indoor playground Kinderspeelparadijs at De Krim Holiday Park. Midget golf courses are to be found at various locations on the island. De Koog has an indoor swimming pool and in the summer months, you can visit the outdoor baths Molenkoog in Den Burg.
