There are no real cities on the island. West-Terschelling is the biggest town, with around 2,600 inhabitants.
Oerol on Terschelling is a cultural event that takes place in the summer. Because of the populartity of this event, hotels and campings are fully booked way before the festival.
Terschelling is the only Wadden island on which cranberries grow. In 1840 a ship carrying cranberries sank in front of the coast, and the cranberries washed ashore. The people from Terschelling started to grow them, and nowadays there are pretty big fields where they grow cranberries. During the year there are competitions between bakeries trying to make the best cranberry cakes.
There are ferry connections from Harlingen on the mainland and from the island of Vlieland.
