National Park Duinen van Texel is a nature reserve of 43 square kilometers and forms a sea of dunes as far as you can see over the entire west side of Texel. The area consists of five sub-areas, each of which is equally beautiful. Texel is loved by many animal species, who like to come and find peace and space: the common seal and the gray seal have a great time along the coastline, rabbits and hares hop in the dunes, where ermines and foxes hunt and if if you are lucky, a playful white-beaked dolphin will jump out of the water. Texel is also a popular breeding and stopping place for many different species of birds, such as spoonbills and waders. When you set off, you have to cycle fourteen kilometers before you reach the first point of interest. You will pass one of the four monuments on the island that bears the name Crashed Lancaster Bomber Monument. The stone with plaque is placed to commemorate a crashed plane of the Allies. Six kilometers away is a similar monument with the same name, but this refers to another crashed aircraft. There are two attractive farms on Landgoed De BONTE (experience) in which old crafts are practiced. Here you can learn how the artisans in a soap factory, a beer brewery, a paper maker, a bakery, a candle maker and a distillery work to manufacture their products. The next monument is also a war memorial. The Texel War Memorial, which you can see in Den Burg, commemorates the many deceased residents of Texel. The last monument you can view is a municipal monument in the form of a polder mill. The meadow mill De Kemphaan was built to flood a bird sanctuary. In the fall of 2008, a blade broke off during a storm and several blades were damaged. In the summer of 2009, the mill was completely restored and made ready to grind again. In 2013, the mill runs on a voluntary basis and is owned by the Association of Natural Monuments.
