Description Kitespot Vuurtoren (Lighthouse)
In the north of Texel between beach pole 28.2 and 32.0 is a kite surfing mecca for the well advanced kite surfer. At the Lighthouse in Cocksdorp is a large beach, where you can kite surf on both the North Sea side and the Wadden Sea side, depending on the wind.
At the North Sea you have waves and you can get on the water in a wind from south-west to north. The wind comes from the other side and you have a great flat water spot on the Wadden Sea, but for both sides is a big BUT …
You must be able to kite surf and understand how currents and tides work! Because the current is treacherous here and can be so strong that upwind sailing is no longer possible, so you will not come back!
Are you here for the first time? Definitely ask to the locals for info on safety, do’s and don’ts. What is the prediction for getting currents and make sure you are not “pulled around the corner”.
Food 'n Drinks
The North Cape beach pavilion is located on the Wadden Sea side. A great location for a snack and a drink and of course a wonderful view over the Wadden Sea.
On the North Sea side there is really only beach, but at the beach entrance there is a restaurant where you can eat and drink something.
If you come by car, you can park it in the parking lot near the beach entrance. However, you can also park on the Wadden Sea side. There are a number of parking spaces past the campsite and you can also park at the North Cape.
