Goeree-Overflakkee tourist tips Goeree-Overflakkee is a great starting point, whether you’re into active day trips, such as a day at the beach, cycling or walking trips, spotting flamingos in the mudflats, a contemplative stroll – or if you’re interested in learning about the history of an island; all at your own leisurely pace. The natural surroundings are unspoilt, and the coastline and beaches are wonderful. Where birds parade A genuine promenade has been realised on the eastern side of the island, where you can watch various species of birds parade. Along the bird boulevard Hellegat-Ventjager, you might just spot a spoonbill, great tern or European bald eagle. The Battenoord area is the annual wintertime home of a group of flamingos, so don’t forget your binoculars. Children can explore the whole island through discovery trails as a GO Ranger. Ask for the fun pack, including binoculars, a rucksack, cap, and the GO Ranger assignment booklet at the Ouddorp VVV Ipoint centre. A dive in history Are you interested in history? If so, then Ooltgensplaat may well surprise you. Stroll past the newly restored 17th-century town hall, visit the weighing house at the harbour or pass Fort Prins Frederik. If you’re looking to discover the history of the fort, then it’s fun to do the puzzle trail. You can pick up a puzzle trail for free at various locations, including the Weeghuisje in Ooltgensplaat. Beach fun If you’re a fan of the beach and the sea, then Ouddorp and the Brouwersdam will delight you with their broad sandy beaches and vast dune area! The Brouwersdam is the ultimate spot for windsurfers, foilboarders and kite surfers from all over the world. Experience the water for yourself during a surf clinic or watch as the surfers brave the waves. There are also some great beach bars to stop at for a bite or drink. Looking to stay overnight? In addition to beaches and nature, the villages and marinas also have plenty of atmosphere, and Ouddorp and Middelharnis are great for shopping. There are various food and drink locales and accommodation options spread over the island. Whether you want to spend the night near the coast, in the buzz of a village or close to nature, there’s something for everyone. At the VVV Inspiration Point in Ouddorp, you can find inspiration, information and cycling and walking routes for example. Phone: 0187 - 68 17 89 or go to: Information 37
