    The beach section at Paal 17 can be reached by turning off at Ecomare. The beach is wide, clean and has some shops.
    In the summer, around 7 pm on Tuesdays, there is the Dragon Festival held by the Texel Vliegerhuis. In the evening, you can see cold-blooded horse rides that come along the beach and take the road home.
    The restaurant is bright and friendly, offers delicious food and nice service.

    The beach is beautiful and the food really delicious.
    In summer, the small pavilion of Paal 17 is only recommended.

    Here is always worth a trip to the beach. With a little luck you will also experience one of the Kitesurfer World Cups there (September)

    At Paal 17, the largest catamaran regatta in the world (round Texel) takes place every year in early June. Then there are the windsurfers there.
    This sporting event lasts two weeks. Great to look at. With the serenity of the Dutch everything becomes a real highlight.
