Loosdrecht - the ultimate, idyllic water sports village - has many opportunities to make your holiday, or just a day out, a huge success. The 5 connected lakes (the ‘Vuntusplas’, the ‘Stille Plas’ and the clear drinking water lake) offer 3600 hectares of wonderful aquatic sports fun. Loosdrecht also has many other recreation possibilities. After all, it isn’t called “Holland’s Water Garden” for nothing! For the holidaymaker who is looking for a little peace and quiet, there is the unspoilt ‘Vuntusplas’. Use of motorboats is restricted here. Row boats and canoes can be hired so you can discover the beautiful plants and birds or enjoy the ‘Vuntus Route’. At the numerous marinas around the lakes, you'll find various sailing and surfing schools for both young or old alike. Fishing, round trip excursions, shopping, tennis, mini-golf, arts, strolling or enjoying a concert - these are just some of the things that visitors to Loosdrecht can enjoy. There are also many culinary things to do. When the weather isn’t good, there are still lots of things to do in the area: Indoor pool; indoor tennis and squash courts; horseback riding schools; snooker and bowling center, and even a place for kids’ parties. Every weekend during high season there’s something special to do in Loosdrecht. Like the busy evening markets at the Oud Loosdrechtsedijk, with live music and the annual fair on the Nootweg in Nieuw Loosdrecht. The fairy tail-like gondola parade, every year on the 3rd Saturday in August, is really a fascinating spectacle on water. At the end of June there is a trip for small boats (“Rondje Loosdrecht”) complete with live music and snacks and drinks along the route.
