Since the opening of the Haringvliet locks and the introduction of some tidal flow in the Haringvliet, the island of Tiengemeten has been returned to marshland and turned into a kind of wilderness tourist attraction. A foot and cycle ferry takes visitors across from Nieuwendijk and boats can moor during the day in the small 'Grote Haven'.
There are cycling and walking routes around the island (bikes to hire for €3/day) and a cafe at the easternmost end. Try to visit during the week to get a feeling of the natural wilderness that was intended, rather than the overcrowding of visiting cyclists.
