Corona measures on Texel

New website for VVV Texel

14 April 2016

The VVV Texel website attracts huge numbers of visitors. In 2015, over 21 million pages on - the website of the largest island off the Dutch coast - were visited by 1.7 million people. Together, these website visitors accounted for more than 20,000 bookings for accommodation and events on the island.

After more than 10 years in its current format however, the website was due for a major revamp. On the new site there is more space for photos, videos and stories from visitors and residents on Texel. The site has been designed to reflect VVV Texel's new house style. The house style uses the four colours of the island and the diagonal lines (at an angle of 35 degrees) are an abstract reference to the shape of the island.

Over 50% of visits via mobile phone

There's a pretty good chance you'll view the VVV Texel site on a mobile device. In 2015, over 50% of visits to the site were made via a smartphone or tablet.
