Walking and cycling
in the Netherlands
If you enjoy cycling and walking, then Beach Resort Makkum is the place for you! Walks and cycling routes throughout the vast Frisian meadows, through nature reserves and along the IJsselmeer coast.
Cycling routes with nature and culture
At the front office we have collected a variety of breathtaking cycling routes. The Ald Faers Erf foute (museum route of 20 km) is an exciting combination of nature and culture. A day trip to Harlingen (20 km), Heeg (25 km), Stavoren (26 km) or Balk (30 km) are also recommended possibilities.
For cyclers who enjoy long-distance cycling, we recommend choosing one (or a part of) of the cycling routes along Friesland’s Eleven Cities (300 km). (300 km). Of course, guests can also create their own routes with the help of cycling marking points.
Rent a bicycle or e-bike
At Captain's Bikes & Boats, bicycles or e-bikes (electric bicycles) are available for rent.
The beach, only a few steps away from your accommodation
Some of the most beautiful nature walks begin directly at the holiday park. In fact, Beach Resort Makkum is situated directly along a beautiful, protected nature reserve. Other recommended walks include peaceful strolls along the beach and IJsselmeer coast. For a stroll in the forest, simply drive half an hour to the Gaasterland.
