In the summer there is nothing as refreshing as water and there is plenty of that in Rotterdam! From the Nieuwe Maas River that flows right through the city to the lively city harbours. Do you long for a dip in the sea? In no time at all, you are lying on the beach at Hoek van Holland. This expansive stretch of beach is also part of Rotterdam. Sea, beach, dunes, promenade, harbour, polders and attractions: Hoek van Holland is very versatile. In the summer it’s a pleasant, bustling seaside resort but Hoek van Holland is also attractive to visit in the other seasons: with a great cultural offering, a diverse hinterland, and giant ships from the international Port of Rotterdam passing by.
