Walking and cycling
Whether you want to see the historic sites in town or to enjoy the nature around Hoek van Holland – there is a suitable route for every interest. Ask at the VVV (tourist office).
Hoek van Holland is part of the National Park Hollandse Duinen, in 2016 declared the most beautiful nature reserve in the Netherlands. In this beautiful Dutch landscape, country estates, dunes, seaside villages and towns alternate with each other.
Behind the angular structure of the Zeetoren, near the beach of Hoek van Holland, is an ancient dune dating from the 14th century. Here you’ll find grass of Parnassus and orchids growing and hear nightingales, robins and skylarks singing. Foxes and natterjack toads live in the shelter of the bushes between the rolling dunes with grasses and mosses.
