Here you will get an impression of the diversity of activities and sights that you can find at Goeree Overflakkee.
Beautiful flower fields from mid-April
Spring is awakening, we can go outside again and enjoy the beautiful nature. Cycling and walking, but also by car you can pass the many flower bulb fields on Flakkee. Depending on the weather, the tulips are in bloom from the end of March / mid-April to about mid-May and that is really a color explosion not to be missed! Almost one in ten tulips sold in the Netherlands comes from the South Holland island. There are several places in the Netherlands where you can admire these flower fields, but Goeree Overflakkee is certainly not the least! So enjoy yourself here and take beautiful pictures!
Various flower bulb fields can be reached on foot or by bike from Bed & View.
Flowering fruit trees
The fruit trees are blooming again on Flakkee. Impressively beautiful! Very close to Bed & View you will find the orchard of Kees van de Water with a great diversity of fruit trees, but the most special is the Regal Red or the Me Amore, a large red pear of which there are only about three in a kilos and which is also soooooooo delicious! By the way, that actually applies to all his fruit. In late summer and autumn, the fruit shed at the edge of the orchard is ready to buy all that delicious fruit yourself.
The address: Altekleinsedijk 3 in Ooltgensplaat
Cozy villages and towns
On Goeree Overflakkee you will not find any big cities, the villages and towns are authentic and atmospheric, there are hardly any high-rise buildings and yet you will find everything you could want. Plenty of cozy cafes and eateries, nice shops, artisan bakers and butchers, cheese farms and a country shop, but also modern supermarkets and weekly markets.
There is a movie house, a lot of culture, a small zoo, there are several museums and beautiful monuments to see and even more, too much to mention.

Beautiful bike rides and lovely walks through green landscapes
Goeree Overflakkee has several beautiful nature reserves, where you can enjoy peace and space, hear and spot many birds, have the chance to see deer, where hares run and pheasants carefully seek their way. Where fjorde horses and heck cattle can be admired. Each one an oasis for nature lovers!
But also over and along the dikes it is wonderful to cycle and walk, to feel the wind in your hair and to experience the vastness of our island. Even then it may just happen that you will see deer, hares and pheasants in the fields and meadows of our farmers!
And in early spring you can marvel at the beautiful flower fields in all colors, really beautiful!
