Surroundings and activities
Dirksland is located in the province of South Holland on the island Goeree-Overflakkee. As "people from the other side of the river" we have learned to appreciate the village for its charm, its beautiful centre with a typical Dutch church and central location. It is not a large village which, although expended in recent years, has retained its character. In the village there is an indoor swimming pool, a sports hall and an excellent hospital.
Dirksland, the ' petit Paris ' of Goeree-Overflakkee, is ideally located in order to discover the island Goeree-Overflakkee. Located near the coast, on the outskirts of the village and between the meadows our B&B, it offers you various possibilities for rest and relaxation.
We gladly help you plan your day and offer tips for excursions and activities. Each day, there is something new to see and to make your stay memorable.
You can find some suggestions for day trips at the bottom of this page. Would you like to make your own program than you have access to our free Wi-Fi so you can find all the information you need on the internet.
Picturesque villages, interesting cities, nature reserves and beautiful beaches are easy to reach. From our B&B you easily cycle to nature areas such as the “Slikken”, the “Kwade Hoek” and “Quakjeswater” or you can tour the twelve mills on the island. A network of cycle routes, 425 kilometres all together, crosses the island. For a small fee there are some bikes available.
To explore the countryside, you can also make shorter or longer hiking trips or you can visit specific attractions in the area by car. Would you like a day of quiet and relaxation? You are welcome to stay “at home” in your own spacious living room or lounge in our large garden and read a book, watch a movie, listen to some music or simply enjoy the quiet.
If you would like to pay a visit to some villages or towns we suggest you go to Middelharnis, Ouddorp, Goedereede or Hellevoetsluis which are all in the immediate vicinity. Places like Rotterdam, Breda, Bergen op Zoom and Antwerp are within an hour’s driving distance, just like Zierikzee, Goes, Vlissingen and Middelburg. On and near the island are numerous (day-) activities. Besides walking and cycling you can visit wide beaches with beach bars or the quiet beaches of Lake Grevelingen. In addition, you can sailing, horse riding, surfing, kite surfing, swimming, diving, or shopping. You can also make a covered wagon ride, dine in one of thepicturesque small restaurants or hire a scooter at the tourist office.
We wish you a very pleasant stay in our B&B Groenewege!
