With public transport to De Cocksdorp
The public transport on Texel consists of a bus line that runs at fixed times and small buses that must be reserved. The regular bus service runs between the Veerhaven, Den Burg Centrum and De Koog. You can reserve a small Texelhopper bus for all other destinations on the island. The small Texelhopper busses take you to and from over a hundred pick-up points on the island. De Cocksdorp can only be reached by Texelhopper.
Renting a bike in the ferry harbour
You can hire a bicycle in the ferry harbour as soon as you step off the boat.
Online booking is recommended.
Parking on Texel
On almost the entire island there is paid parking. The most convenient solution is to purchase a Texel e-vignette. This allows for almost unlimited parking in all villages and at the beaches. There are some exceptions to the parking duration. The vignette works with license plate registration.
The Texel e-vignette is valid for 365 days from purchase and costs €30,-. You can also buy a week pass (€20) or day pass (€10,-).
