Hoek van Holland Beach



Rotterdam Beach Hoek van Holland

Although Hoek van Holland is located 24 km west of Rotterdam City, it's an official suburb. The little village which is translated 'Corner of the Netherlands' marks the beginning of the stretched out port of Rotterdam. Hoek van Holland village is situated adjacent to the New Waterway ship canal, whereas Hoek van Holland beach is at the North Sea side. Hoek van Holland village is quite boring, but as the beach is quite open and windy, it's a real kite surfers paradise.


An industrial look...

Hoek van Holland has an industrial looking beach as the harbour installations are clearly visible. From the beach you can see the passage of huge passenger cruise ships and the daily ferries to England. From Hoek van Holland village is only a stone's throw away from the Maeslant Storm Barrier that protects greater Rotterdam from flooding. You can do a tour through this impressive construction! The fortress of the Fort 1881 is located in Hoek van Holland as well. You can visit the fortress which is fun for kids!


with an intimate atmosphere!

Lying or strolling on the beach, you have an unobstructed view over the North Sea and some really good beach clubs are opened 365 days a year. Beach Club Royal offers a fine dinner on their wooden terrace and great day beds on the beach. Villa on the Beach is the best dance bar to visit at Hoek van Holland beach. For the best cup of coffee of Hoek van Holland visit beach joint 'Zwoel'. Hoek van Holland Beach offers full facilities such as a kids playground, a first aid department and a huge camping site. You can walk down the Queen Emmaboulevard from the village to the beach. Hoek van Holland offers wifi on all beaches at a fair daily rate.
