This is a lovely marina. Although quite small it has a nice selection of restaurants where you can sit over lunch or just a beer or coffee. The place is very attractive and peaceful although it does get a lot of day trippers just like...More
This is very charming village and not so busy as e.g. Volendam. Cute harbor and interesting, pretty houses all around. Nice for a walk and perhaps some lunch/dinner in one of the harbor side restaurants. There is also a wooden shoe fabric.

Still very reasonable for what you are getting but do try them on and get good advise if you want to wear them. It's not tha you can wear them in and they are not for any type of foot. (The top of your foot is the critical part)
