The island Goeree Overflakkee is completely surrounded by water and lies on the border between South Holland and Zeeland. The island has the most hours of sunshine and the most kilometers of beaches, dunes, cycling and hiking trails and nature reserves such as the Kwadehoek. The beaches in Ouddorp are famous and have the blue flag which stands for clean and safe. On an autumn day just get a breath of fresh air or on a nice summer day to look for a dune pan and then to one of the beautiful beach pavilions for some food and drink (including Pole 10, Werelds, Strandclub Zee, Natural High).
The island has the Grevelingen lake on one side and the North Sea on the other, so there are so many possibilities to enjoy the water, sail or rent a boat and sail on the Grevelingen. At the Brouwersdam (known from Concert at Sea) you can swim, (kite) surf, dive, fish, sail, blokart and power kiting.
