  • Bernisse — a water-rich recreation area for fishing, swimming, surfing and rowing
  • Brielle — a beautiful village with old fortifications, played an important part in the Eighty Years' War
  • Goeree-Overflakkee — tourism is mostly centered around the beach resort of Ouddorp
  • Hellevoetsluis — a fortified city with a protected city center
  • Hoeksche Waard — tiny villages in a green polder landscape
  • Spijkenisse — largest city of the region, a suburb of Rotterdam
  • Westvoorne — dunes and quiet beach resorts
