Water sports

The sea around the Sand Motor is the ideal location for many water sports enthusiasts. Water sports are permitted here, but keep the following in mind:


There are two locations around the Sand Motor where (kite) surfers are allowed to land or enter the sea. (Kite) surfing is allowed in the period from 15 May to 15 September. Make sure to stay 150 meters from the waterline.

  • View the permitted (kite) surfing locations on the APV zoning map and the beach bill of the municipality of The Hague and Westland. You can find these on the sites of the relevant municipalities.

Sailing yachts and other water sports

Black and yellow cardinal buoys surround the Sand Motor to warn of possible shallows. The Sand Motor is included in recent sea charts.
