The Netherland's Nature Island

Terschelling is part of an island chain in The Netherlands known as the West Frisian Islands. After you cross the shallow tidal flats of the Wadden Sea, the island offers camping, cycling and nature walks in a unique landscape that includes the Boschplaat salt marshes and sand dunes.

Amazing wide beaches, charming little villages and restaurants and the beautiful natural harbour are some highlights of Terschelling. The lighthouse in Brandaris is a well-known landmark on the island.

Its wild North Sea location caused many shipwrecks over the years and has benefited an otherwise almost treeless Terschelling. Subsequently, many houses were built using the masts of sunken boats washed ashore!

Visitors swarm the island creating a wonderful atmosphere during a very popular summer event called the annual Oerol Festival. It features a diverse array of open-air theatre acts, buskers, visual art displays and live music performances.

Yachting enthusiasts can test their skills or you can catch the ferry from the port in Harlingen in the northern province of Friesland or a catamaran from the neighbouring island of Vlieland. Booking.com can accommodate your stay in a range of hotels, apartments or vacation homes.
