7 tips for a fun weekend with friends in summer

A week or weekend away with your friends, colleagues or sorority? Sporty, creative and inquisitive friends will find lots to see and do on Texel. Here are nine good reasons why Texel is a fantastic destination for any holiday with the girls!

1. Relax with Woolness

Let yourself be pampered with Woolness, the 100% Texel take on wellness, where your body and limbs are wrapped in lanolin rich, pure sheep’s wool. Sheer bliss for your body, but it also helps your mind relax as you lie there all wrapped up in a cloud of wool. For the Woolness experience, visit the completely refurbished Boutique Hotel Texel, which has just opened an extensive wellness centre.

2. Go on an oyster excursion

Go oyster gathering with the Tesselse Oesterman, Martin Zeeman. Martin takes you to a beautiful spot along the Wadden coast where you collect oysters, mussels, cockles and winkles. Of course, this oysterman also makes sure you can enjoy the catch afterwards.

3. Energetically active

Of course it is great to relax and laze on the beach, but you can also be active. With wave surfing, powerkiting and beach volleyball, for example. It is all possible at Zandbank and Teambuilding Active.

4. Modelling, photography or painting

Discover your hidden creative talents. Go modelling, photography or painting with the Texel landscape as your subject, led by Paulien Valk of Atelier Bij de Pomp. More info on these and other workshops.

5. Toast with Texel wine

Pick up a bottle of semi-dry, fruity Texel rosé at Wijngaard De Kroon van Texel and enjoy la vie en rose during a beautiful sunset by the sea. Also fun: book a guided tour of the vineyard!

6. Pick your own fruit

At Food Forest Texel, you can taste everything that is ripe on the spot. They let nature do the work as much as possible and everyone is allowed to harvest, during the special picking days.

7. Go shopping in Den Burg or De Koog

In Den Burg and De Koog, you can do some great shopping. There are plenty of clothes shops, souvenir shops and shops selling Texel products.
