Enchanting island

If you didn't know it was here, you would probably drive straight past this enchantingly beautiful island in the Alkmaardermeer. Many water sports enthusiasts know this secret spot and moor here via the Alkmaardermeer to enjoy a day of gorgeous nature at this isolated spot inhabited by only a hundred and sixty people. This is precisely what makes De Woude so special! Watch the most diverse grassland birds flying here and enjoy great mooring facilities for your boat.

If you travel to the island by car or bike you will use the ferry at Markenbinnen. As soon as you step foot on the island you will become familiar with the island feeling ‘there are no have-tos, only want-tos’. You will find two great restaurants here where you can enjoy this characteristic bit of the Netherlands until the small hours. Can't get enough of this beautiful little piece of the Netherlands? Then book an overnight stay at the bed & breakfast you will find here.
