The North Sea beach at the Brouwersdam is a so-called activity beach. This means that water sports have priority over regular bathers. The end of the activity beach is marked with yellow buoys. At spring tide, ‘the bay’ can fill up, creating a large lagoon ideal for kite surfing. At low tide, the beaches are perfect for kite buggying or beach sailing; adrenaline on the beach and the water. For equipment rental, lessons or a tasty snack you can go to Beware Beach or Natural High.
On the other side of the Brouwersdam, on Lake Grevelingen, you can go windsurfing, SUPing and sailing. The shape of the dam allows for sailing in all directions, ideal for both beginners and the more advanced. You can take lessons and rent equipment at Brouwersdam Active Lakeside. Lake Grevelingen offers you plenty of space to create long lanes. Are you getting excited?
The Brouwersdam may be the absolute hotspot for Goeree-Overflakkee but surfing at the Grevelingendam cannot be left unmentioned. This location also has the ideal combination of wind strength and the safety of being an inland water.
One of the most famous surfing locations in the Netherlands is the Flaauwe Werk. Because of its northern location and the shape of the island, this beach is far enough out to sea for a good swell. The lack of sandbanks along this part of the coast also makes for perfect waves. It is for good reason that surf school The Surfkaravaan is located here.
