Swallow from Flakkee
The route starts at the edge of the Slikken van Flakkee. This unspoilt nature reserve is located next to the Grevelingenmeer and consists of a mixture of dry ground, shallow water and mud flats and salt marshes that have been sown with rye, grasses and shrubs over time. In large parts of this area, nature is allowed to take its course. In Herkingen you will pass the Dankbaarheid, a beautiful white flour mill from 1841.

Beautiful Middle Harness
In the polders you cycle on leafy cycle paths along wide grasslands and fields. On the horizon you can see restless clouds and long rows of trees. In Middelharnis you experience the atmosphere of times gone by. You will pass De Korenbloem, a corn mill from 1705. On the old ring you will see the Reformed Church from the fifteenth century.

There is a special bird observatory on the edge of the Haringvliet. It is shaped like a sandwich tern egg. But then 8 meters high and 11 meters long! And you have a 360-degree view of a colony of these sandwich terns, but also the wide Haringvliet and the Haringvliet locks.

The mill is the only mill in South Holland with a wooden top shaft and cast iron head. Millers on this former glory mill and oldest mill on this island were obliged until 1918 to grind a bag of wheat free of charge once a year for the poor of the village. From 1881, successively L. Vink and W. Landheer were millers / owners. The latter had a 25 HP internal combustion engine installed in an outbuilding next to the mill in 1912. After Landsheer, three members of the Meyer family worked the mill professionally until 1973. In the past, the mill also had a peeling stone, the peeling box, tubs and peeling tin are still present in the mill. In 1973 the mill became the property of the municipality of Sommelsdijk, which restored the mill in 1975-77. On that occasion, the auxiliary engine was removed and sold to the Machine Museum in Zwolle. The Molenstichting Goeree-Overflakkee has been the owner of the mill since 1988 and had a new restoration carried out on the mill in 2003/2004.
