Map & surrounding area
As the boat turns into the harbour, you meet West-Terschelling, the gateway to your destination Terschelling. The Brandaris lighthouse, which stands as a beacon here in the middle of Terschelling’s biggest village, has been greeting seafarers since 1594. It is a lively place, with museums, shops, bars, dance halls, restaurants, hotels, wellness, a swimming pool, and the VVV Tourist Office.
In West, all the elements literally come together; it is where the sea licks the land. Then there is the ‘fire’ in the manned Brandaris lighthouse, which lights up the skies, surrounded by the scents of the mudflats. Every flavour and taste imaginable can be found in the shops and restaurants.
