Texel and the other islands (Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland and Schiermonnikoog) are very popular with the tourists and during the Summer the population more than doubles. But when we were here, it was still reasonably quiet. You can bring your car on the ferry (it is only a 20 minute trip) or you can rent a bicycle on the island.
Texel has a beautiful landscape, dunes and sand lovely little towns.
Here are a few impressions of the island.
