Corona measures on Texel

Walks on the beach

Texel is known for its expansive beach, which is ideal for anyone wanting to do a more demanding walk. In good weather, enjoy walking with your feet in the water. In the autumn months, feel the fresh breeze in your hair as you walk and end your day with a hot drink at one of the beach pavilions.

Thirty kilometres of beach

The beach on Texel is more than 30 kilometres long and can be found on the west side of the island. It starts with vast sand dunes at the southern tip of the island: De Hors. Walking northwards, you will regularly come across beach pavilions. In the summer months, swimmers and sun lovers populate part of the beach here. After leaving the coastal village of De Koog, you will pass the special De Slufter nature reserve, where a channel reaches far inland from the sea. As a result, it's impossible to walk straight across the beach at this point. In the south of the island, you will find a nudists' beach just ahead of the Hoornderslag at Pole 9. Another one can be found in the north of the island, before the Krimslag at Pole 28.

Beach poles

Beach poles have been positioned one kilometre apart across the entire length of the beach. Each pole has its own unique number: starting with Pole 6 in the south of the island and ending with Pole 33 to the very north of the island. These poles are a useful way of deciding how far you want to walk. All of the beach poles are indicated on the map of Texel.
