Lovely area, lots of water sports taking place and only a short drive to the local station - trains every half hour into Amsterdam Central takes 20 minutes and costs less than 10 euros each for a return and free parking at the station.

The lakes just south of Amsterdam are perfect for day recreation on a sunny day. These man made lakes offer a huge variety of sights with beautiful nature on the uncountable islands. Get out of the city and go to one of the beaches, rent a boat (sail or motor) or have a drink on a terrace along the border... More

We were taken for a day on the water by boating friends. Just lovely- open water, islands to moor up on, and wonderful birdlife. Pure bliss.
