In the area you will find various nature reserves (Slufter, Muy) about 10 minutes by car. Ecomare (seal shelter) is also close by. A subtropical swimming paradise can be walked in 10 minutes. The nearest village is De Koog (10 minutes walk). There you can go for daily shopping and renting bicycles. The largest village of Den Burg can be reached in 10 minutes by car.
The Texels Museum Ecomare is on the road to beach pole 17. Walking through forest and dune is about 50 minutes. There is a nice exhibition and the water room is especially nice. However, the top priority is always feeding the seals. First ask what time it is so that you can include it in the planning.
The Flora farm is located on Pontweg near exit 13. Here the Jutters have organized an exhibition that is very nice to see. Make sure you also speak to one of the Jutters because they can tell beautiful stories. Do not go there in winter because it will be terribly cold.
The Subtropical swimming pool Calluna is located on Schumakersweg and Pontweg just before De Koog. From the house it is fine to walk. Then go through the forest, on the bike path to the right until Euroase. If you enter the site there and keep left, you will get there the fastest and you do not have to walk along the road. There is also a sauna and Turkish bath.
