Car to Ameland?
If you come by car, you can drive directly to the campsite. Strandcamping Duinoord is a car- free camping site. You can park your car in one of the camping car parks (paid) or in a public car park outside the site (free). At the reception of beach camping Duinoord you can buy a parking ticket for the parking lot on the camping site.

Note: If you want to take your car to the island, don't forget to make a reservation in advance for the crossing.

Without a car to Ameland?
We recommend that you leave your car in Holwerd. The island is very suitable for walking, cycling or by bus. You can rent a bicycle immediately upon arrival on Ameland and the nice thing is that the bicycle rental company will bring your luggage to Little Canvas Escape.

Buses and taxis are also available from the wharf. The buses leave after arrival of the boat and drop you off at the entrance of beach camping Duinoord. It is also perfectly arranged for the return journey, the buses are in line with the schedule of the boat (half an hour before departure).
