Strand Rockanje

Reviewed By Mike_oxehard - Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

Sadly, I have not been able to stay in the vicinity, overnight, since October 2016; thus, when I get an opportunity for a quick 'drive-through', I inevitably have to sacrifice seeing good friends, and opt to do the 'lone' traveller thing - by seeing sites and landmarks, with break-neck rapidity.....
I've been to Scheveningen - very nice indeed, yet I prefer this, in all honesty....
Excellent car parking facilities, and the beach is long, clean and pleasant. It's ideal in the mornings, for a run (great indeed)....I notice there are always many wind-surfers here, who remark the 'perfect conditions' are all in place, for their talents....
There is a beach diner and Nightclub called 'Havana', which is a great deal of fun....one can also see the remarkable road bridge (Dammenweg with the N57) which leads from Nieuwenhoorn 'area', across the water (from Voorne-Putten) to the next island - Goeree.........
The Summer? The place is then, bustling, but there's always plenty of space, hither and thither.....sadly, I've been reticent to 'go down' to my Speedos (or indeed, Mankini), since, circa 2014.....in no way, sadly, do I resemble Daniel Craig, emerging from the waters, in his swimming shorts....which is a pity, as I'm sure many 'eyes would turn'....(as would many stomachs)....However! There is no doubt, in my mind, that between now, and Summer 2017, I shall 'get to work', and just like Renee Somerfield ('Are you Beach Body Ready?'), I will.....indeed be so very very ready.....!
This is a decent, clean and pleasant beach....highly recommended !! It certainly helped clear my hung-over head, many times, around 7 am, in 2009 !

Voornes Duin

Reviewed By Gerjanne P

Beautifull landscape to hike with wild Galloway cows with enourmous horns to come across. Several hiking routes clearly marked with numbered signs. Both forest and sanddunes with dunevalleys and small lakes. Typical vegetation like buckthorn and the rare parnassia. A few passages over the high dune to the gorgeous wide sandy beach. Area is part of Natuurmonumenten (free visit and free parking at Waterbos, Rockanje)

Lots of teas, chocolates and coffee as well as a nice selection of ice cream got there by bike on a nice cross-country trip. Service good once roused from the back of the shop.

Openluchtmuseum De Duinhuisjes

Reviewed By Mildenburg - Oostvoorne

Openluchtmuseum de Duinhuisjes ligt in het duingebied tussen Oostvoorne en Rockanje, vlakbij Paviljoen De Meidoorn en Het Bezoekerscentrum De Tenellaplas van het Zuid-Hollands Landschap. Het museum omvat een viertal typische duinboerderijtjes eind 19e, begin 20e eeuw, en de bijbehorende opstallen. De huisjes zijn authentiek ingericht, en de bezoeker die wil luisteren wordt getrakteerd op prachtige verhalen uit het verleden. In de loop van het seizoen zijn er themadagen en er worden bijzondere activiteiten georganiseerd. Op de website kun je daarover lezen.

Do you want to be locked up in an old butchery? And can you escape before the butcher is back within an hour? Many people went before you and vanished without a trace..... Do you dare?

Reviewed By _anyameijer - Rockanje, The Netherlands

De kamer zit goed in elkaar en is geheel is stijl van een slagerij. Spannend en moeilijk af en toe. gastvrij ontvangen.
