A wonderful holiday
with children

Beach Resort Makkum offers many exciting activities for your children! Here your children can spend their time flying kites, playing in the sand, and frolicking in the (fresh!) water. In terms of safety, one of the biggest benefits is that the IJsselmeer lake water levels remain very shallow. Children can also spend time in the waterways with rubber boats, airbeds and other toys. Looking to take a break from the sand and water? Than the kids can always go to one of our many playgrounds and sports fields.

A Holiday in Netherlands is wonderful with kids

A Holiday in Netherlands is wonderful with kids

There is plenty for children to do here. The beach is only walking distance and most bungalows and villas are located by open water. Children will have a lot of fun playing with inflatable boats, inflatable lilo or fishing rods. Most of the bungalows lie directly by open water so the kids can jump in whenever they want from your own backyard. At Captain's Bikes & Boats you can rent bikes, go-karts or canoes to explore the area. Want to do something more relaxing? We recommend playing some mini-golf with the whole family! 


Captain's Games

If the sun isn’t out there are plenty of things to do indoors at Captain’s Games.
This includes the following: 


  • Playstation
  • Extreme shock 
  • Air-hockey table
  • Children's corner with Disneyfilms
  • Lego
  • Helicopter


Attraction- and circuitparks and indoor swimming pools

Friesland offers many exciting day trips for children. Examples include visiting the Aqua Zoo in Leeuwarden or the Kameleon Village (‘Kameleon dorp’) in Ternerne, or go to the indoor (subtropical) swimming pool

Child-friendly bungalows

Duinvilla's, niet direct aan het water gelegen

For guests staying with young children, our Dune villas ("Duinvilla's") are ideal. These holiday homes are not located directly on the water, but in a small dune landscape a few metres further on.

During the high season (5 weeks), the animation team organizes all kinds of activities for children. Games, competitions, children's disco, sports. There is much to do during a summer at Beach Resort Makkum! You will find more information about Captain Mak here

We will visit them again in summer!

It is a wonderful destination for people with (young) children. We will visit them again in the summer holidays. The only flaw I can think of is that they don’t have their own swimming pool, but there are a couple of indoor pools in the area. Lovely villages in the area, Jopie Huisman museum, Sneek etc..
