The Loosdrecht lakes, an idyllic place for water sports, offer numerous opportunities for a most successful holiday or a day trip. The five connected lakes, the Vuntus Plas, the Stille Plas and the clear drinking water lake, offer 3600 hectares of wonderful aquatic sports fun. Loosdrecht also has many other recreational venues; it is not for nothing that the Dutch named it the "Water Garden". For the holidaymaker who is looking for peace and relaxation, there is the unspoiled Vuntusplas. Motorboats have a limited access there. Rent a canoe or a boat so you can discover the beautiful plants and the unique birdlife here, or follow the "Vuntusvaarroute". In the many marinas around the lakes there are various sailing and surfing schools for both young and old. Fishing, round trip excursions, shopping, tennis, mini golf, arts, strolling or enjoying a concert, they are all much preferred activities for visitors in and around Loosdrecht. The gastronomy is also great here. Furthermore, Loosdrecht is also set up for times when weather is not too great. There is an indoor pool, indoor tennis and squash courts, riding stables, a snooker and bowling center and even a children's party center. During the high season every weekend offers something special to do. There are busy evening markets with live music at the Old Loosdrechtsedijk and the annual fair on the Nootweg in Nieuw Loosdrecht. The fairy tale-like gondola rides in the third Saturday of August every year is a fascinating spectacle on water. In late June there is the "Around Loosdrecht" long boats tour, with live music and snacks and drinks along the route.
