Reeuwijkse Plassen is a popular series of lakes that are great for boating, windsurfing, and stand-up paddle boarding. Stand-up paddle boarding is a sporty activity on the water that is rapidly gaining in popularity. Reeuwijk is known for its lakes, which you can explore for yourself by renting a silent electric boat in Reeuwijk at Café Bistro ‘t Wapen, Restaurant ‘t Vaantje, or the Sup & Watershop (which also has canoes and SUP boards).

Out on the water, you’ll experience nature very intensely. The peace and quiet will make you feel relaxed. The gently rippling water and the wind in your hair are guaranteed to help you unwind. Out on the Reeuwijkse Plassen lakes, it seems like you are in a different world. And there is also a lot to see below the water line, which you can discover at the scuba diving park.

Want to go for a swim with the family or a group of friends? There are various swimming pools in Bodegraven and Reeuwijk for both indoor and outdoor water fun with the kids. And there is an indoor pool with a paddling pool for the little ones. Or take a refreshing dive at Surfplas, a recreation area on the banks of the lake at the end of Reeuwijkse Houtwal. And along Elfhoevenstrook in Reeuwijk, you will find Elfhoeven, which is a great place to go for a swim.
