Hook of Holland is a busy port. But it's also a resort, sometimes called "Rotterdam-by-the-Sea." This port-resort arrangement is typical of the Dutch and Belgian coasts: with large populations and little land, the seacoast has two "jobs" to do: handle shipping, and provide recreation for summer tourists. But the Dutch are so tidy that they manage to conceal the dock works from the resort beaches. Close to the industrial districts of Europoort and Rotterdam, it is literally situated on a corner - if you turn left from the North Sea beach onto the promenade which runs along the Nieuwe Waterweg (the access river to the harbour of Rotterdam) you can almost touch the ships that sail past. For this reason, the promenade attracts many visitors. The district of Hoek van Holland covers an area of 16.7 km² (of which 13.92 km² is land). It has endless possibilities, whether on kilometres of beach, or cycling or walking through the countryside.
