Terschelling is the second largest Wadden island and consists of approximately 80% nature reserve. The island has a length of 30 km with an average width of 4 km. On the east side of the island is the large European nature reserve the Boschplaat.

There are 15 villages and hamlets on the island, of which Terschelling-West is the largest. Most villages are located along the 15-kilometer main road from Terschelling-West to the easternmost village of Oosterend. Tourist cars are also permitted on the island, yet the bicycle on the island, with more than 80 km of cycle paths, is the most important means of transport.

Terschelling-West is the arrival and departure point of the Harlingen-Terschelling ferry. The duration of the crossing is approximately 2 hours with the ferry service and 45 minutes with the express service.

The Municipality of Terschelling has not included any provision on nude recreation in the APV. In De Sjouw, the information newspaper of Terschelling, on the page: information Municipality of Terschelling, with the recreational game rules, there is the following passage: Nude recreation in itself is not prohibited on the Terschelling beaches. However, we request that you do not recreate too close to the beach crossings in this way.

The quiet beach west of pole 8 is very suitable for nude recreation. The beach is only at the Groene Strand (west side at pole 0) and at West aan Zee (pole 8.4) accessible by bicycle or by car. There are also some hiking trails that end up at the post respectively 3, 5 and 7.

On the west side you can reach the beach (by bike) at the beach entrance the Groene Strand. The most easterly part is it beach resort of Terschelling-West. Here is also the beach pavilion De Walvis . Beyond the & quot; busy & quot; beach is the beach suitable for nude recreation.

On this side is the Noordsvaarder, one of the largest sandbanks of The Netherlands. Through the vast sand plain, with a width at low tide of sometimes more than 1 km, this beach is less suitable for swimming.

On the east side at pole (8.4) the beach can be reached via the West aan Zee beach entrance. At the beach entrance is the eponymous beach pavilion. There is also a toilet unit here. The beach is less wide here and therefore more suitable for swimming. On the nudist beach area are no amenities.
