Great sailing location close to Amsterdam
Water sports

The Westeinderplassen original was a area with moors that were used for digging away peat. Later most lakes that were create were converted into polders, but the 10 square kilometer Westeinderplassen stayed a lake.

Nowadays it's used for all kinds of watersports.

There are many small islands in private ownership; on some of them still strawberries are grown.
