The Lighthouse of Texel

One of our trips this vacations was to the island of Texel.
On the island there is a beautiful lighthouse, it was a great opportunity to see and also a great opportunity to KAP.

In front, there is a big beach, great for doing beach sports like kite buggy.
But beware of quicksand (yes, there is a big warning sign at the entrance of the beach).

If you take a walk to the other side of the lighthouses you can spot another island, Vlieland is the closest neighbour of Texel. If you look at it by air, they are very close.

On the beach, you can find other things as well, this is a “strandpaviljoen” where you can drink something
