Vlieland is a car-restricted island, meaning tourists must leave their vehicles on the mainland. In Harlingen, close to the Rederij Doeksen terminal, there are several paid parking facilities available for both short and long-term stays. Particularly during the peak season and on popular days, it's recommended to book your parking space in advance. If not, ensure you arrive well in advance to find an appropriate spot. For added convenience, shuttle buses operate from most parking areas to the terminal, ensuring a relaxed start to your journey.
