We would like to stress that the water beyond the yellow ball line is too deep for recreational swimming. We, therefore, advise you not to cross this barrier and to stay within the indicated area.
Nesselande is a spacious new extension at the edge of the city limits, on the north-eastern fringe of Rotterdam. The palm trees and wide beach on Siciliëboulevard feel like a little corner of southern Europe in Rotterdam. The beach in Nesselande is a good alternative to the crowded seaside resorts in summer. The difference being there are no dunes but modern high-rise buildings. Siciliëboulevard and Maltaplein offer restaurants and ice cream parlours, clothing stores and supermarkets.
The Zevenhuizerplas has a clear division between the areas for swimmers and water sports. This makes it possible to windsurf, sail, dive and row safely at the lake.
There is still plenty to see and do once summer ends. The shops are open every Sunday. Nesselande is a great starting point for a bike ride through the Groene Hart, a relatively rural region boasting a high concentration of lakes, wetlands and forests. Nesselande is also home to a lot of modern architecture.
