Cycle route Enjoy Ouddorp and surroundings
Ouddorp, Stellendam, Havenhoofd
Havenhoofd may be small, but it is adjacent to a beautiful nature reserve: the Kwade Hoek. Thanks to the salty soil, this area is home to many halophytes, plant species that can withstand drought and oxygen-deficient conditions. In fact, they thrive in the salty soil. Species you may encounter include glasswort, salt marsh grass, salt rush and sea couch. In the areas with more fresh water, you will see species such as flora grass, slender water rush and various orchids. Further into the dunes, more shrubs come into the picture, such as sea buckthorn, privet and elder.
All this different vegetation attracts many water birds. The mudflats and salt marshes are also attractions for various birds. Large grazers such as cows ensure that the vegetation is maintained. So don't be surprised if you suddenly come face to face with a cow.
Ouddorp was voted the best seaside resort in the Netherlands in 2007 and in 2018. Reason enough to pay this village a visit! In the cosy centre, you can go for a coffee on a terrace, fresh fish and nice shops. In addition, it is a popular spot for kite surfers. A beautiful sight to see all those stunts as you cycle along the coast near Ouddorp. In the background, you can then see the island of Hompelvoet.
Between Stellendam and Havenhoofd is the Deltahaven, home to the cutters of Ouddorp, Goedereede and Stellendam. Cycle delightfully through the dunes, over polders and along the beach. With this route, you will experience a complete holiday within a few hours!
