Natural swimming pond 

As guest at Ridderstee Ouddorp Duin you can also use the facilities at neighboring Vakantiepark De Klepperstee, including the natural swimming pond!  The water is purified in a natural way by hundreds of plants on the banks of the pond. Furthermore, additional UV filter equipment ensure clean water.  This means there is no chlorine or other chemical in the water.  The water is not heated. 

The natural pond is fully fenced and consists of three different basins which have various depths. The first pond basin is 40 centimeters deep, the second basin is 80 centimeters deep. Finally, the third water basin is 140 centimeters deep. There are stairs in the two deeper basins. Additionally, around the pond there is a wooden platform and lawn where you can enjoy some relaxation and sunbathing! 


The natural pond is always developing. Every Monday, the swimming pond is closed during the day for required rest and recovery. Unfortunately, additional days of closure are necessary occasionally. These closures are not cause for a refund.

In 2022 a sauna was placed at the swimming pond. Through the reception you can book a sauna session of 60 minutes for up to 4 persons. Booking is possible from Monday to Sunday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Use of the sauna is completely free for guests at Ridderstee Ouddorp Duin!
