Nature Terschelling

One of Terschelling’s most important amenities is the vast nature, through which you are allowed to bike or walk practically unrestricted. The islands’ nature is so beautiful and special that it has been declared a world heritage site.


For bird and plant fanatics, Terschelling is the ideal location to be, but also for people who are simply looking for tranquillity, space and fresh air; Terschelling will be a true relief.


Terschelling offers the unique combination of vast and magnificent nature and the virtual impossibility of getting lost. The sea is always near and once you know how to follow the coast, you will always know how to get home. Besides, you will always be able to find a tall dune in the vast dune landscapes, from which you can not only oversee the entire island, but from which you can sometimes even see the coast on bright days.

In other words: Terschelling is the ideal location if you want to feel like you are the only person left in the world, but you do not feel like getting lost.

Terschelling has a number of specifically designated nature reserves, such as the world-famous ‘Boschplaat’ and the cranberry paradise ‘De Koegelwieck’. Both of these nature reserves are only a ten minute bike ride away from Tjermelân.
However, in reality, if you spend your holiday at Tjermelân, you will be surrounded by nature all the time. The beautiful dune landscapes that surround our holiday park hold their own with the most magnificent nature reserves on the island. If you only take a few steps, you will find yourself in the centre of nature. If you walk only a couple of hundred meters, you can step up to the ‘Waddendijk’, glancing over a nature reserve of excellent quality, where you can enjoy the wonders of nature, such as the many birds flying over your head and the unique tidal movement.
