Workum, or Warkum as the Frisians call it, is one of the Frisian ‘Eleven Cities’ and its favorable location makes it an ideal starting point to explore everything Friesland has to offer. Workum has its own beach. Because it is a wide sandy beach that slopes very gradually into the IJsselmeer, it is a child-friendly and perfect location to enjoy the sun and the IJsselmeer for a day. Kite surfing, wind surfing or stand-up paddling are also very popular in the area.
If you prefer to venture out with a sloop or sailing boat, you can easily depart from Workum. Aldehoeve-logies offers various package deals including sloop rental or Polyvalk touring sailboat rental. Click <here> for available options.
