  • What was it wonderful to walk about ten measured. All around you the sounds of birds, frogs and other animals. Paths are there for convenience. So you have to go to enjoy what nature has to offer. We bought a combi-card, so we could sail with the Pont and visit 2 Museums (Agricultural Museum and Rien Poortvliet)

  • Ten measured is an island in the herring, one of the large inland waterways of Zuid-Holland as well as the connecting Dutch deep. Ten measured is a real islet, you can only come over water, i.e. with a pont. Ten measured belongs to the Hoeksche worth, which is on 1 January 2019 a new municipality in South Holland. Previously, ten measured at the dike and a few more years back at Zuid-Beijerland. All names from the same region were created by reclassification. The inhabitants of the Hoeksche worth mention their churches still at the old names, so ten measured is an island of South Beijerland. In the port of ten measured steps daily walkers of the Pont. Their goal: Discover the island in a day. But that is actually too short. There is so much to see and experience here. You walk from a nostalgic countryside to the flowery meadows and thence back to swampy reed countries. So close to the big city of Rotterdam you will find silence and tranquillity here. And to think that this nature island looked completely different a few years ago. On the spot where tough cattle graze and beavers swim, previously strakgetrokken potato fields were already lying. At the end of last century, the wildest plans for another destination of ten were measured. From dumping site for contaminated sludge to airport, from Bungalow Park to nuclear power station. But nature won and natural monuments got the management in hand. The transformation began in 2007, and it is still more beautiful every year. In that first year we dug on the south side a hole in the dike and the first creeks. This resulted in a so-called wetland, partly under the influence of the river and partly as a vast swamp. But we did not let nature swallow up all history. In the oldest polder of the island (to the west) restored natural monuments the old culture landscape. Ten measured consists of three areas, each with its own charm and nature. In the east the area lies melancholy. Here you can imagine yourself in the farmland of the 19th century. In the small-scale fields, old-fashioned vegetables grow like show bean and beet. In the orchard Hang apples and pears and in the Weitjes and on the dike graze Dutch draught horses. Here you will also find the inn. In the middle of ten measured is the part that we have called opulence. It consists of rugged grassland and open water swamp. A Walhalla for bird watchers. In The winter months it is one soggy plain with especially Bergeenden, Slobeenden, winter payments and lots of geese. In the spring and autumn the food-rich slik plates fall dry. Then you see avocets, Wulpen, Plaice magpies, herons and spooners countries. They eat their belly full before they continue their trek. In the west of the island you can find swallows and swamps. This part is called wilderness and is the least accessible. It is a fresh water stroll where you can go to your heart's content. You feel it right away when your boots are sucked in the mud: here the water is the boss, with creeks that have emerged after the dikes have been punctured. A dynamic area with wild nature. Every visitor is welcome on the island, there are several possibilities for disabled people, scootmobielers and strollers:-In the visitor centre there is an ordinary wheelchair for an adult to rent for use all over the island. -A visit to the information centre (with disabled toilet)-a visit to the Rien Poortvliet Museum and Agricultural museum-on the paved road to the Vlied mountain-on the paved road to the east of the Island (inn Ten measured is present here)-in Play nature is a browse chair: a special chair for a child who comes to play in nature. -Benedenvedieping Pancake House Hèlène is accessible for wheelchairs-over the paved road to the west of the island to the holiday cottages of outdoors.
