Yes, it’s officially summer! That means that with a bit of luck we can swim outside. Of course you can take a splash in the outdoor pool to cool off. But there are a lot of beautiful places where you can swim in natural water in Utrecht.
If you live in Utrecht, there is a good chance that you will regularly be found at the Maarsseveense ponds in the summer. Also with kids this is a must, because besides that you can swim in natural water there is also a play island. This is just as much fun for the older children among us (guilty!).
The beach is not free, but it isn’t overly expensive. You pay €5 for a day ticket and children under the age of 11 pay €3. Besides swimming you can also go surfing, sailing and fishing.

The Honswijkerplas is, as the name suggests, a puddle. No large beach, but certainly no less fun. Maybe more fun! Moreover, you can swim for free and enjoy a nice walk. You can even barbecue there, but only on gras. Or you can take a well-stocked picnic basket with you. Also very nice!

Is a trip to Australia not possible this year? Fortunately, you can also enjoy the natural water in Utrecht. Wakeboarding, Waterskiing or paddling: it’s all possible Down Under. The hotspot for all water sports enthusiasts and water rats. Of course, all that fun has a price tag, but don’t forget to check out the site for more information. If you come alone for the beach you pay €4 euros and the little ones (t / m 5 years) pay €2.50 euros.
