Your supboard or rowing boat can even be moored at the house’s own jetty.
Directly against the park on the other side of the dike is a large recreational area with several beaches, walking and cycling paths. Here you can play sports, cycle, hand bike or relax on one of the beaches or fields. Lunch or dinner can be enjoyed at the beach club “De Zoete Zee”.
