"BBC's World Top 10 Watersports destination" Sneek by ATLC

Sneek Travel Guide: 35 reviews and 111 photos

Jul 18, 2004


The BBC has named Sneek as one of top 10 watersports holiday destinations in the world. Just after Venice and even above Miami.

My own visit

Well, I can certainly commit to this BBC statement. Sneek is surrounded by water: lakes, canals, rivers... It is a highly attractive area to go sailing and boating. However, this goes for the whole of the Province Friesland. Not Sneek only!

It's also a lovely town to visit. Let the tips (upcoming) speak for themselves.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Sailing/boating, lively and historical city center

    Waterpoort looks interesting, and it is funny to see these 2 tricycles, I always wanted to have such a vehicle, unfortunately they are mostly around 7.000euros ;-(((
