Makkum- Friesland- IJsselmeer
VILLA MAR is located 300m from both the center and harbor, where fishing boats and the navy fleet dock in the evening, and where you’ll find the dikes from which you’ll have a beautiful view at the sunset. There are several marinas and nature areas in the area. Makkum also has one of the most beautiful beaches of the Ijsselmeer, where our surf-sailing school ‘Surf & Sail Makkum’ is located.
Especially sailors rate Makkum high because of the short distance to the sluices of Kornwerderzand, which gives you access to the Wadden Sea.
The light sea climate, the clean sky, the silence of the countryside with its vast horizon, the world-famous pottery factory Tichelaar located in Makkum for 400 years, the old houses in the village center with the beloved facades work as a attraction for both tourists and directors. This is why the wadden area and surrounding area are included in the world heritage list.
Makkum is well connected to the motorway, and within one hour reach from both Amsterdam or Groningen.
Harlingen lies 17 km away from where you can take the boat to the Wadden Islands Terschelling and Vlieland. You could also consider chartering a boat at the many marinas in Makkum.
