The fortified town of Willemstad spoils its visitors with a special combination of historical and culinary hospitality with numerous nice restaurants. Particularly interesting in terms of cultural history: the Mauritshuis, the Koepelkerk, the old town hall and the fortifications surrounding the city. And challenging through the rugged landscape, for example around the Hollandsch Diep. The marina provides a perfect base for your cruise.


The most south-westerly seaport of the Netherlands is Breskens. The starting point for many Channel crossers who want to rest a little before starting the crossing. Or the first point to tie up again. Fishing, shipbuilding and one of the larger stations of the Royal Dutch Lifesaving Boats (KNRM) find their home in Breskens.


This town on the river IJzer has existed since the early Middle Ages and has amassed a tumultuous existence over the centuries. Best known in the history books is probably the Battle of Nieuwpoort in 1600, in the fights between the Republic of the Netherlands and the Spanish occupiers. Nowadays, the town is divided into the part around the harbour with its many charming restaurants and cafés and Nieuwpoort-Bad where many Belgians come to enjoy the beach.


With an almost mythical status, Dover is probably one of the best known port towns on the east coast of England. But as well as being one of the largest ferry and transhipment ports, it is also well worth a visit on a pleasure yacht.





Situated on the Crouch, Burnham is one of those stereotypically beautiful towns on a lovely tidal river. Originally relying mainly on its ferry function, it later developed strongly as a fishing port for oyster farming.


Brightlingsea is located at the northern end of the county of Essex. Today, it is a small commuter town for Colchester, but in former times it was a lively fishing village. Brightlingsea is part of the "Cinque Ports". A historic alliance of coastal towns in Kent, Sussex and Essex.

Heybridge Basin

Pin Mill



Blackwater River

The River Blackwater, an almost famous name to many North Sea sailors. This natural harbour, together with the Heybbridge Basin, forms one of the unique destinations on the East Coast of England that make the coast so attractive.
