From deciduous trees and pine forests to moors and dunes.
No dune coastline is as diverse as the dune areas of the island of Texel. The natural diversity that can be found here is not only unique for the Netherlands, but for the whole of Europe. It is home to the largest spoonbill colony in the Netherlands and almost nowhere in the world do so many bird species (as many as 300) can be encountered on a single island. As well as birds, wild orchids abound on the island, although rare in the rest of the country, they can even be found on the roadside.
