Featuring: The Netherlands

TransEurope Marinas members in the Netherlands

Small in surface, big in water

Ever thought of visiting the Netherlands? This tiny country is covered by water so the best way to discover it is… on board your boat.

The Dutch waters are the perfect setting for a boating holiday, ever more since the area includes various TransEurope Marinas.
Up north you will find Marina den Oever, as an excellent base to explore the archipelago of the Frisian Islands and the North Sea coastline. Going south on the IJsselmeer Jachthaven Waterland is your next stop, nearby the picturesque towns of Marken and Volendam, but also close to sparkling Amsterdam. More inland Jachthaven Wetterwille is certainly a marina to visit.
The southern part of the Netherlands offers the Delta area, with its richness of lakes, islands and the unique nature of National Park the Biesbosch that can be visited directly from Jachthaven Biesbosch. Sailing boats will find their paradise heading towards the coastal lakes with stops at Marina Port Zélande (Grevelingen) and Delta Marina (Veerse Meer).
