Getting from Amsterdam to Texel

Traveling to Amsterdam late August. We are considering a day trip to Texel. What is the best way to reach Texel from Amsterdam for a day at the beach? Is it doable or are we choosing wrong?

Train to Den Helder, Ferry then bus. http://tinyurl.com/grrse34

Long way just to get to a beach though. Plenty of beaches much closer to Amsterdam.

If you want to go to Texels beer brewery, do sheep petting, visit the beach trash collector museum, hike in de Slufter dunes and nature area, visit typical islandvillages... go to Texel. Long travel.

If you only want a beach.. wait for the whether first... if it is good than go to Zandvoort, or IJmuiden, or Bloemendaal... www.9292.nl

If you just want a beach then a 2 hour fairly expensive trip to Texel is a bit much nice as it is.
