  • We have made holidays in Makkum on the IJselmeer. At first glance we were slightly disappointed by the beach at Makkum, we are accustomed to the beaches in South Holland. Because we never were we could imagine us not so much under a huge freshwater lake connected to the Wadden Sea. The water is to far into very shallow, which makes it very attractive for surfers. Further out, it is perfect for sailing, or generally for the boat trips. Since there are virtually no tides, it is well suited for beginners. As already addressed here but to no avail looking beaches with dunes. Depending on what you want to spend for my kind of holiday, can the IJselmeer but the perfect place here to be.
