Deltapontjes 2023 [English]

Dintelmond/Dintelsas - Willemstad - Ooltgensplaat - Galathese haven - Benedensas This year, a ferry will cross the Volkerak twice daily between Brabant and GoereeOverflakkee. From the upper deck, there is a wonderful view over the water. This ferry service is an excellent opportunity for hikers and cyclists to enjoy the picturesque and lovely villages around the water of the Delta. You can visit Fort Sabina for instance, and be surprised by this 12hectare verdant fortification from Napoleonic times. From the fort, the ferry crosses the Volkerak to Ooltgensplaat harbour. From the jetty, it’s only a few minutes’ walk to Fort Prins Frederik or you can alight the Galathese harbour on the Mariadijk, where there is also a fun outdoor play area. A cycle path has been created along the entire dike up to Oude-Tonge. But the stop at Benedensas is also worthwhile; from there, explore the beautiful Dintelse Gorzen nature reserve with various walking routes and a bunker from WWII that now serves as an information point. Th Bunkertreppe is an artistic stairway that is utilised as a lookout point.
