Hoek van Holland

Hoek van Holland
The Essential
At the mouth of the Nieuwe Waterweg, Hoek van Holland is the outer harbour of Rotterdam for passengers and the departure point for ferries to England (Harwich). The vision of the huge number of ships heading for Rotterdam or the North Sea is impressive. Opposite, are the Europoort and a wind farm. An artificial beach was created to the north of the town in 1971.
