Scattered in the meadows, there are typical rural sheds (sheep fines). Cycling and walking trails lead past the typical Texel earth shores (garden shores). The island has over 135 km of cycle tracks. Inland the calm activities of the islanders reign. In the high season there are many people on Texel. Rest seekers are wise to avoid such places as the center of De Koog and Den Burg.
