Kwade Hoek nature reserve - Goedereede
At the head of the island of Goeree-Overflakkee lies the tidal area De Kwade Hoek. The area is centuries old. In the past, there were often treacherous currents and sandbanks off the coast within this area, which regularly caused ships to get stuck. Because of the dangerous water, it was called 'the kwaaien hoek', so now De Kwade Hoek (the evil corner).
In the nature reserve, you mainly find so-called 'halophytes'. These are plants that cope well with the high salt content in the soil. Bird species such as the black-tailed godwit, avocet and redshank like to nest in this vegetation and are therefore common in the area. Cattle also graze in De Kwade Hoek.
Cycle or walk along the viewpoints, dunes and creeks and enjoy this special, forgotten piece of nature in the Netherlands.
