Our trip from Heusden to Sleeuwijk included a detour for an afternoon visit to the beach at the end of the Dode Maas Arm, off the Afgedamde Maas.

We'd been here the previous summer when it was scorching hot, and it is a great spot to swim or play with the water toys when the weather permits. This year was not quite so sweltering and on a Friday afternoon we had the place to ourselves.

Boats can anchor overnight or tie to the shore if their draught permits, but we normally just stop there during the day, preferring the mod cons of a shore-side mooring for an overnight stop.
