Travel Tips for Hoek van Holland

Beach Power

by RoyJava

It is said Hoek van Holland should be a beach resort only for locals and people around Hoek van Holland, like from Rotterdam, Monster, Ter Heijde etc. Could be true, still we enjoy the special power of this Hoek van Holland beach!

Maybe not yet a trendy beach resort like Noordwijk and Scheveningen but Hoek van Holland is a lovely beach resort with all kind of sports and events. And little by little the place is growing to a bigger and more modern hot spot. I just do love the beach and the view to the North Sea. Some times it can be very quiet, in the week-ends crowded like disco, still there is plenty of space! I enjoy visiting Hoek van Holland just before and after the high season, when daytime ... and when evening falls.

Walk through the dunes...

by mafootje

Beside that a walk to the dunes can be very relaxing, it is also a place where you can find a bit of history.

At many places you can find bunkers which reminds you to times of war. Because the "Waterweg" was an important gateway to Rotterdam and the Netherlands you will see bunkers meant to protect this gateway.

Hoek van Holland Sunset

by RoyJava

Anywhere in the world the sunset-time is magical and mysterious.

Most people enjoy these stunning moments of their holidays, their free time or just moment of peace and silence.

When evenings falls in Hoek van Holland that is not much different from other places. I can sit down on the beach, enjoy the peace and silence and watch the sunsets.

It is like the sun is going down in the North Sea and that is a moment of stunning thrills.

It is because of the New Waterway, too,... I know.

All is moving ... thanks to the river- and oceanwater!

Saying Goodbye

by RoyJava

I am not that fond of saying "goodbye" and "until we meet again" ...

And that very "goodbye" feeling I always get when on places where people do say these things and know they are leaving their beloveds for longer time.

Like on railway stations, in the airports, and ... at the harbours or at a small port. Maybe because I had to leave my place of birth, my native country, my childhood ... *kidding* ...

In Hoek van Holland that feeling is always on my mind.

Sometimes it is sad, sometimes it is happy ...

And when I leave I always say "goodbye" to the ocean, the beach, the canal ...

Goodby Hoek van Holland, until we meet again!

Maeslant Storm Surge Barrier

by RoyJava

Even Hoek van Holland is well-known for being the "corner of Holland", where huge ships and the Ferry cross the New Waterway to the North Sea and, the wonderful beaches, you can not miss the Maeslant Storm Surge Barrier.

This huge experiment was because of the flood in 1953 and is for the reduce the possiblity of exceedance of the North Sea water level. The construction is tested every year which was on September 29th. 2007. All was in good condition and, there were about 3000 watchers.

There are different ways to visit the place, included for groups, and I do hope I can watch this remarkable, cultural event next year!
