Swimming in the Oldambtmeer
In the summer it is lovely to go swimming at the Oldambtmeer. It offers two beaches with safe swimming zones. The Northern beach is located near Midwolda and the Strand Zuid (beach) near the Southern side of the lake.
Kids and adults are having fun the entire day at the north beach of the Oldambtmeer, in Midwolda. The large sand beach is ideal for sunbathing and kids can play in the playground. The terrace near the pavilion provides a beautiful view across the water and marina.
Strand Zuid (South Beach)
Blauwestad also features its own beach. Strand Zuid is located near the new marina Blauwestad. A boardwalk allows you to walk straight up to the beach and a large grass-land for sunbathing.
Beertster plas (Pond)
You can also swim in the Beerster Plas, a small pond. No facilities are present, however, the water is clean and the beach is a nice place for playing and sunbathing.
Outdoor pool De Ringberg in Scheemda is opened during summer months. When the weather is a bit worse, there are two indoor swimming pools which you can use instead: De Hardenberg in Finsterwolde and De Watertoren in Winschoten.
