Hoek van Holland has one of the widest beaches in the Netherlands. The sun shines a lot at the beach.
The ‘Large’ Beach
The southern part is the area near the Badweg and the Zeekant. Most of the beach pavilions are here and most of the beach events also take place in this area. Many facilities are available: showers, (disabled) toilets, parking places, beach wheelchairs, a first aid station, lifeguards, children’s play areas and bicycle parking. There are also shops and other facilities on the Zeeplein square at the end of the Badweg. Cyclists and hikers can stop for a rest and enjoy the beautiful view of the beach, sea and mouth of the Nieuwe Waterweg.
The ‘Hoekse’ Beach
The beach at the Rechtestraat is perfect for water sports enthusiasts. You can take lessons or hire outfits and equipment at De Surfschool and Surfschool Hoek van Holland. The Windsurfing Association Hoek van Holland and Kitesurf School are also on this beach, and next to the two beach pavilions, you will also find the Central Lifeguard Post. In terms of facilities, the beach also has showers, toilets and bicycle parking.
The Northern Beach
The northern part of the beach can be found at Slag Stuifkenszand and extends to ‘s-Gravenzande (Slag Vlugtenburg). You can enjoy lovely walks on this quiet beach. You will also find the naturist beach between beach poles 116 and 117. Nudist recreation is not permitted in the dune area.
