Favorite thing: The youngest village of Texel is De Cocksdorp. It is the northern most village and is named after the belgian N.J de Cock, one of the engineers who helped to make the Eierlands Polder dry.
De Cocksdorp has about 400 inhabitants and is most famous for its lighthouse, about 2 km north of the village.
Near the Cocksdorp you can catch a ferry to Vlieland. This ferry is only operating in paek season and you can only go by foot.
