Corona measures on Texel

Tips for women who want to visit Texel

A week or weekend away with your girlfriends, sisters, colleagues or sorority? Sporty, creative and inquisitive women 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. Discover your hidden creative talents
Try your hand at sculpting, photography and painting with the Texel landscape as your subject, led by Paulien Valk of Atelier Bij de Pomp. More info about this and other workshops.

3. Texel wine
Pick up a bottle of semi-dry, fruity Texel rosé at the local vineyard Wijngaard de Kroon and enjoy la vie en rose during a beautiful sunset by the sea. 

4. Pick-your-own garden
Pick the most delicious summer fruit. In the pick-your-own garden, there is always something to be picked throughout the summer: the strawberries, blackcurrants, blackberries and gooseberries are juicy and ripe here. A sign at the entrance of the garden tells you which types of fruit (and vegetables) may be picked. And when the flower garden is in bloom, you are allowed to get busy with your scissors in this garden too. 

5. Work up a sweat!
Sure, relaxing and lazing around on the beach is wonderful, but it’s also a great place to be active. How about surfing, power-kiting or beach volleyball? Or stand-up paddling (SUP) and beach yoga, which make for a relaxing start or end of your day. It's all posible at De Zandbank and Teambulding Texel

6. Make a 'Ommetje'
‘Ommetjes’ are footpaths through pastures, for instance, in Oosterend, Den Burg, through the Eierlandse polder and in the former dune areas near Den Hoorn. You get to walk in places that didn’t used to be accessible; peace and quiet and wonderful natural scenery are guaranteed and you can be sure that the walk will clear your head. Check out the short walks.

7. Join a oyster- tour
Collect oysters with oysterer Martin Zeeman. Martin takes you to a stunning spot on the Wadden coast to collect oysters, mussels, cockles and periwinkles. And it goes without saying that this oysterer, owner of delicatessen shop De Tesselse Oesterman and author of the book Oesters & Meer, will make sure that your catch of the day is turned into a delicious treat afterwards.
