Europoort and Maasvlakte are not your typical tourist attractions but port areas. Massive ships, cranes, and containers do not offer the perfect backdrop for a romantic day-trip, yet those who admire the power of colossal machinery will be mesmerized. This area is of great importance to Netherlands’ economy and gives off a sense of never-ending activity, which is educative as well as offers an unusual type of entertainment.
Nature lovers can take wonderful trips from Rockanje or Oostvoorne. The Voorne Dunes are one of Western Europe’s finest nature reserves, and the area has lots to offer to the bird-lovers too. The rural landscape is crisscrossed by miles and miles of roads and dedicated cycle paths which avoid built-up areas and take cyclists to attractive villages such as Tinte, Zwartewaal, Abbenbroek and Heenvliet.
Experts of history, active and extreme sports enthusiasts, wildlife devotees, and architecture aficionados can all be engaged in activities in the surrounding area and will definitely not be bored during their stay at De Beer.
