Terschelling has a so-called 'ribbon' development, where the villages are built on a long road from West to East. There are some roads from south to north to the bathing beaches and summer house areas, cycle paths through the dunes, polder and along the Wad. You cannot drive the island on a round trip by car or bus, you go back and forth on the same road. And the great thing is that you are always near the sea. The true island feeling.
When the boat arrives, the first village you see is West-Terschelling. In this lively village there is plenty to do. Visit museums or go out for a meal.
