Texel is the largest Waddenisland in the Netherlands and the structure is typical for all the islands being the bridge between the North Sea and the shallow Wadden Sea. Along the North Sea there is a broad range of dunes to protect Texel from the water, along the Wadden Sea is a dyke. The western side is hilly, the east is flat. Traditional fishermen villages such as Oudeschild are to be found along the Wadden Sea, boats can take you to see the seals, one of the larger mammals to be found in the wild in the Netherlands.

At one place along the North Sea the Sluftervalley shows a hole in the Dune range. Here the sea a high tide flows inward, creating a special habitat. Also from the North Sea side of Texel are my photos of the Lighthouse and the North Beach.
