Here you will get an impression of the diversity of activities and sights that you can find at Goeree Overflakkee.
Atmospheric marinas and harbor canals
Goeree Overflakkee has authentic marinas on all sides of the island, so you can reach and moor our island from all sides with your own boat, you can taste the atmosphere of the various towns and villages and good food. In earlier times these marinas were sea ports. Moreover, Goeree Overflakkee has seven historic harbor canals, along which there is much to discover. For centuries, the port canals were the lifeblood of the island, people and products were brought in or out via this route, to and from the bustling ports. Now, in our time they are still partly navigable, you can walk or cycle along them to enjoy this water, the wide landscape and the beautiful monuments of Goeree Overflakkee.
Heritage line Goeree Overflakkee tells the story of living with and surviving from the water as friend and enemy. This heritage line combines monuments, landscape and water and tells an important story of the history of Goeree Overflakkee. Between all this history and culture, the harbor canals lie like pearls in the landscape.
Information about all this is available for inspection in the B&B or you can purchase it for a small amount from us or at the VVV Goeree Overflakkee.
