Various parties are involved in the further development of the 'Landtong Rozenburg'.
First the Council of the town Rozenburg. Then Port Rotterdam, Rijkswaterstaat (the state, so to speak) and the WWF (World Wildlife Fund). But also the City Council of Rotterdam and various other institutions.
Main objectives are safety, nature and wildlife protection, developing recreational areas and economical growth.

On the photo a combination of some of these factors: the entry to the Nieuwe Waterweg, the beacon, Hoek van Holland on the other side of the water and in the foreground two recreational fishermen.
The point of land at Rozenburg is a narrow strip of manmade land that has taken on a life of its own. It was created as a dam between two waterways in the 1970s.
On one side the mighty 'Nieuwe Waterweg' (New Waterway) where ships come in from the North Sea into the Port of Rotterdam, the largest port in the world.
On the other side the Caland Canal where the largest ships (often carrying cars or offshore equipment) come in. The Caland Canal can tak a depth of 24 metres (74 feet).
Fondest memory: On the photo one of the smaller ships, probably going to Africa. You can see that it can unload its containers itself.
