The Hoeksche Waard is considered a National Landscape due to its beauty. Come and discover the charm of this island with this beautiful route. From Nieuwendijk you can take a trip with a ferry to the nature island of Tiengemeten.

Old Beijerland
The route starts in the middle of the polders of the Hoeksche Waard. In this open area you drive over car-free and winding dikes along extensive meadows and ditches along which willows and reed beds grow. Soon you will pass the Kleine Gat, one of the many creeks on the island. How quiet it is here! In Oud-Beijerland you will pass the pleasant old harbour.

The Spui
You cycle along the Spuidijk to Nieuw-Beijerland. Here you have a beautiful view from the road over the marina and Het Spui, a tidal river that was created during a flood in the sixteenth century. You can also see some beautiful farms here and De Swaen, a former flour mill from 1703. Just past Goudswaard, you look out from the Oudendijk over the bird-rich Korendijkse Slikken. Further on you will pass through Zuid-Beijerland, where you will see Korenmolen Landzigt from 1857.
