The fact that it is an island says enough, Goeree-Overflakkee is surrounded by water. The North Sea, Lake Grevelingen, the Haringvliet and the Krammer-Volkerak nature reserve. The island is a true paradise for lovers of water sports. Surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, SUPing and sailing are all inextricably linked to Goeree-Overflakkee. The island is also home to two dive sites: Springersdiep and Preekhil-De Val. If you are in search of more shallow fun, there are great areas for snorkelling.
The Brouwersdam, for example, is an absolute hotspot. The North Seaside is a paradise for surfers, kite surfers and lovers of beach sports. There is plenty of room to go wherever the wind takes you. Lake Grevelingen is ideal for windsurfing. On a windy day, you'll be sure to see them on the water. Gliding over the water at full speed or relaxing on the lake side.
Lake Grevelingen and the Haringvliet are beautiful waterways for sailors. Lake Grevelingen is the largest saltwater lake in Western Europe and has lots of little islands where you can stop off. For a unique experience of the area, spend the night at one of these docks. You do require a docking card to spend the night. This card is available at the Goeree-Overflakkee Tourist Information Inspiration Point. For more information and an overview of points of sale visit the Staatsbosbeheer website (Dutch Forestry Commission).
On the Haringvliet, you sail along various mudflats between the natural islands of Bliek and Tiengemeten. It completes the nature experience of Goeree-Overflakkee.
