There are plenty of things to do with your pet at Beach Resorts Makkum. How about a long walk through the stunning Frisian nature reserves? Alternatively, how about swimming together in the IJsselmeer? Indeed, your dog can also enjoy the water from October to April. Moreover, because the IJsselmeer is knee-deep far from the shore, the water is safe for your dog and possibly even your children. Your dog can play with the waves in the surf, your children can play with their kites in the wind, and you? You can enjoy the beach or the many water sports activities. Whether you kite surf, windsurf, or standup paddleboard, you will enjoy the perfect water (sports) vacation in Makkum either way!

 ✦ Review | An excellent vacation, even for our dogs ✦

"Our dogs had plenty of room in the villa, including space to play. At the resort with the dogs, there is walking (on a leash, but no problem), plenty of room, provided poop receptacles, and during the off-season, you may also walk on the beaches.  Right across from the resort is an off-leash area for dogs around a body of water. There, the dogs could enjoy running and playing off the leash."
