When may we welcome you?

Breathtaking view

From your room you have a beautiful view of the IJsselmeer and you can walk directly to the beach for a relaxing day at the beach, a refreshing walk or an active day of water sports. Because of the shallow water, the beach is also very suitable for children. After a wonderful day outdoors, you can enjoy a beautiful sunset from your balcony or terrace. A perfect end to your day!

What to do during your stay in Friesland?

The central location of Makkum in Friesland makes it easy to explore the province. The capital Leeuwarden is at a 40-minute driving distance from the hotel and certainly worth a visit, as is the smaller town of Sneek with its cosy city centre, which is at a 24-minute drive away. But the various small villages and towns in the area are also worth a visit, such as Bolsward, Stavoren, Harlingen and Workum.
