Hoek van Holland is a special seaside town. Its location is unique: at the significant North Sea coast and at the start of the New Waterway – the gateway to Rotterdam – where a constant flow of imposing sea-going ships set sail for the Rotterdam port. Hook of Holland not only borders the sea, but also the industrious Westland with its numerous greenhouses. Rain or shine, Hoek van Holland is always pleasant. When the sun is out the lovely beach and the pier are the places to be, but also when the weather is not that cooperative you shall not be bored, for there are many museums; among others the informative Reddingsmuseum Jan Lels Redding museum (Rescue Museum) and the swinging Museum RockArt Museum RockArt that tells the story of the Dutch pop music.
The beach, the dunes and the sea are excellent places for countless activities. Cyclists have many kilometres of comfortable cycle paths at their disposal and walkers can roam the dunes and beach. And, there is no place better suited for (kite) surfing, kayaking, beach-volleyball or beach-football than Hoek van Holland.
It is well suited for a nice day out, a weekend break, and an active or relaxing holiday. For, in Hoek van Holland you will find tranquillity and a lively nightlife, as well as fascinating culture alongside the outstretched nature.
