Hellevoetsluis to Rotterdam Ferry Port

by Goggs5590

How do I get from Hellevoetsluis to the Ferry port using public transport? Please can you advise train, metro or bus service?
Thanks in advance.

Which one?

P&O is at Luxemburgweg 2 - 3198 LG Europoort and has a bus connection to Rotterdam Central Station.

Stena Lines is at Hoek van Holland with its own train station.

Yes, do tell us which port you need to go to.
Also, do you know your nearest busstop in Hellevoetsluis or from which address are you leaving?

Re: Hellevoetsluis to Rotterdam Ferry Port

by ATLC

Since I always take a car when I use P&O Ferry at Europoort, I never considered public transportation.

I suspected there is no public transportation and the journey planner PLUS the P&O website proves me correct.

As far as I can see you can't get there with a bus. The bus from Hellevoetsluis takes you as far as Oostvoorne (which is about 20 minutes) and from there it's a 2 hour walk! That's what the journey planner says at: http://journeyplanner.9292.nl/

Plenty of taxi companies in Hellevoetsluis (google) but make sure you call one at least 30 minutes prior to departure.

An overall idea the (taxi) ride to Europoort:
- The ride takes 25 minutes
- The distance is about 22 kms
- It will cost about 40 euro

The cost and distance of a taxi will be larger if you need to go to the ferry at Hoek van Holland. However, if Hoek vH is your port, then you can do this by public transportation though it's a bit of a journey (25 mins by bus/30 mins by metro/15 mins by train + transfer times and walking).

Hi Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I am currently staying at Park Cape Hellius whilst working. I need to get to the P&O ferry port in Rotterdam to meet my girlfriend who arrives on the 8.30 ferry from Hull (UK) on Monday morning but have no transport and as it is always dark when I head off to work and when I get home I have no idea where anything is.

Thank you so much for your reply - It is much appreciated. I think I will try and get a friend to take me.

You are most helpful.

hi Gogg, I know where Cape Helius is, of course. So sorry there's no public transportation.
If you want to be there on time on a Monday morning, do leave early since the N57 can be quite busy. So instead of the usual 20-25 minutes or so, make that 45 minutes by car.

I myself am heading to Rotterdam that morning. In fact, I start work at 8.30 there. So I can't offer my services.
Enjoy Hellevoetsluis. It's cold and rather wet right now.

Foot passengers are required to be at the terminal 90 minutes before departure!

Re: Hellevoetsluis to Rotterdam Ferry Port

PJ, this is about an arrival (picking someone up), not a departure.
In any case, I know by experience that 90 minutes is very steep. Ferry boarding is very much more relaxed than boarding a plane. In fact, with P&O it's like going on a train. If you're on time, you're on time. If not, you run and hope to catch it.

Of course it's always good to be there well before departure.

Travel Tips for Hellevoetsluis

An information center about Jan Planken Dry-Dock.

by Waalewiener

Just when we got to this information center, they closed up for the day.
It was a little disappointing ,Anke Thea was disappointed but that's life ,not much we could do about it.
We walked all around the whole Dry-Dock area and I got some nice pictures. Jan Blanken , born in 1755 in Bergambacht
The Netherlands, and after several different jobs Jan Planken worked his way up to become the'' Inspecteur Generaal van de Waterstaat '', '' Inspector General of the Waterways ''.
Jan Planken build the very important Dry-Dock in Hellevoetsluis.
The adress of this Visitors Info Center is
Industriehaven 50 3221 A D Hellevoetsluis.

Little street towards the harbour

by ATLC

Restaurants, pubs and a few shops in the old center. In Hellevoetsluis most shopping takes place at the mall in the newer part of Hellevoetsluis which is outside the fortifications. In the 2nd photo the footpath towards the center. Mind you: NO cycling in this street!

A nautical town

by ATLC

The nautical history of Hellevoetsluis is one of many centuries. It was a naval town but today it is very much a watersports town. There are over 2000 mooring spots, divided over 5 marinas.
Sometimes historical vessels visit town. That is a beautiful sight on the Haringvliet water! A boat, preferably! A sailing boat possibly. A seaworthy one, since you can cross over to England very easily from Hellevoetsluis.
In fact, the Dutch prince William umpteenth left from Hellevoetsluis to become king of England.

Peaceful off the beaten path place

by robertgaz

Hellevoesluis is definitely way off the main tourist trek. There isn't a lot to do here but I find it interesting to see small places with friendly faces. I happened to be passing through and stopped for something to eat and drink. It's not too far from Rotterdam or Den Haag.

Hellevoetsluis

by BeaYong

Hellevoetsluis (population: 40,200) is a town and municipality on Voorne-Putten Island in the western Netherlands, in the province of South Holland. The municipality covers an area of 46.14 km² (17.81 mile²) of which 14.57 km² (5.63 mile²) is water.
The name translates as "lock at the foot of the Helle".
The Helle was a small local river which disappeared over time.

The municipality of Hellevoetsluis also includes the population centres Nieuw-Helvoet, and Nieuwenhoorn, both former municipalities.

During the time of the United Provinces Hellevoetsluis was the naval port of the Admiralty of the Maas (Rotterdam) and could accommodate an entire fleet within a special land-enclosed fortress with harbour and dockyard facilities, accessible through a canal.

Hellevoetsluis is a modern, lively place. Situated on the Haringvliet with the sea, beach and dunes close by, on the extreme southern edge of the Rijnmond and Europoort areas, close to the broad Zeeland landscape.

"Entertainment"

The old town centre, the fortress, is a bustling and agreeable place in the summer where there is much to see and to do. There are many terraces where you can enjoy a drink and look out upon the busy harbour. The various restaurants serve 'international' food - for example Italian, Chinese, Indian, Greek and of course Dutch. Also outside of the fortress you will find a large variety of restaurants and bars serving food. There are also other facilities such as a children’s farm, a sailing school, a fitness centre, tennis courts, a sauna, etc.

Water sports lovers, day-trippers or local residents: everybody will be pleasantly surprised with the opportunities Hellevoetsluis has in store for them.

Here's a picture of the Shoppingcentre "Struytse Hoeck", a must for the frequent shopaholic.
