#5 De Kwade Hoek

The beaches of Kwade Hoek are part of the Dunes of Goeree, a beautiful nature reserve on Goeree-Overflakkee. Until the beginning of the last century this entire reserve was submerged in water, but nowadays there are a number of beautiful deserted beaches to be found. De Kwade Hoek owes its name to the treacherous currents and sandbanks on which many fishermen and ships have sunk in the past. At high tide, the water still flows deep into the area, creating a soggy pathway. Sturdy walking shoes or boots are therefore definitely recommended! De Kwade Hoek is just a 10-minute drive from Ouddorp and only accessible from 16 July to 14 March. Outside this period, the nature reserve is closed to the public due to breeding season.


So here we are! These were the, in our opinion, most beautiful beaches near Ouddorp. Besides beautiful beaches, Ouddorp offers many more fun and special activities for a fantastic holiday in Zeeland. Read more about it in our blog "The best activities in Ouddorp".
