Sailing, the most Dutch of sports
Sailboats will be visible on the surrounding waters of Willemstad. Going through the "Volkerak" sluses towards the enormous amounts of wide open water that are available in this region. Beautyful graceful yaughts, but also the old "Schoeners" sail by. Now what's more traditional then that in The Netherlands.
Sports on surrounding waters
Willemstad is on three sides surrounded with water. "Hollandsch Diep" and "Volkerak" are huge watermasses of the riverdelta's that are stretching out through the province of Zeeland towards the North Sea. They are excellent terrains to do surfing, sailing, boating, swimming and diving.
Equipment: If not having your own equipment, in Willemstad there is a shop renting surfgear against very reasonable prices.
