    What else ...

    Ouddorp is situated on the edge of a beautifull island called Goeree. We are about 1 km from one of the most beautifull beaches of Holland. Broad sandy beaches not too crowded. We have the most sunhours from Holland. Rotterdam is 45 km away, Amsterdam 120 km, Antwerp about 90 km. Then there are the very charming smaller Dutch towns like Zierikzee 17 km, Middelburg 45 km, Delft 75 km, Gouda also about 75 and Dordrecht 75 km. All can be done by public transport but having your own car would be much more efficient. On our island you can make long walks along the seaside and there are many attractive bicycle routes to be made. If wanted we can provide a bicycle
