Located on Goeree-Overflakkee, the southernmost delta island of the Province of South Holland, Ouddorp is a great base for a walking break on the beach or in the vast dunes. The 56-metre tall red lighthouse can be seen from afar, while the vast and often almost deserted dunes of radiate romance. The village of Goedereede, just east of Ouddorp, is also very popular with fans of picturesque village views.
The small island of Tiengemeten is situated in the Haringvliet, an old estuary that was dammed several decades ago. In the mid-1990s, this last real island in the southwest of the Netherlands, which was mainly used for agriculture until then, became a ‘wet nature reserve’ and recreational area. Tiengemeten is a perfect little haven of tranquillity, with a unique natural landscape defined by water and land. Hop on the ferry, which leaves every the hour, to find out for yourself how lovely it is!
On the way back to civilisation you can make a stopover in Oud-Beijerland for a delicious dinner in the harbour or elsewhere in the town. The authentic, cosy charm of this village makes this a cosy, friendly place to unwind. End your day on a happy note, away from the crowds, among the beautiful, historic buildings in the town centre of Oud-Beijerland.
