Goes is a place that we did not stop at on the way north and consequently we promised ourselves a stop on the way back. It was a great surprise to find a quintessential Dutch Old Town that the Lonely Planet guide has missed! We entered the yachthaven W.V De Werf only to find it is tiny! We felt our boat was enormous in here, but the harbourmaster found us a slot! De Werf is surely unique with it’s holiday atmosphere, tree lined moorings and the lovely old clubhouse with an honesty bar! You help yourself to a coke or beer and put your cash in the box – easy tariff as everything is 70 cents!
