The Berendonck, between Nijmegen and Wijchen, is one recreational area of approximately 170 hectares that was laid out in 1976. Located on the north side of the 45-hectare recreational lake located a beach of 3 hectares with kiosk, toilet blocks and playground equipment. The parking areas are also on this side. Further amenities in the area are below another an 18 hole golf course a dive site and one water ski center .

On the south side of the lake you'll find three forested ones headlands since the construction of the Berendonck nude recreation place, but there was no officially designated section to date nude recreation.

From 2009 has Leisurelands, the owner of the Berendonck recreational area, looked for opportunities for extra generate income from the area, so as to enter the facilities to maintain the area. In the end it was decided for the establishment of a large sauna complex on the east side of the puddle.

With the arrival of the sauna Thermen Berendonck that opened its doors at the beginning of May 2019, are big parts of it area redesigned and the Berendonck now also has one official nudist beach on the first headland (from the A73). This area has more or less functioned as a family beach. In the council meeting of December 20, 2018, the Wijchen City Council, with the amendment of the APV, the area officially designated as suitable for nude recreation.

Due to the redesign of the area, the nudist beach is complete changed. The fixed & nbsp; boarding place for swimming has lapsed. An earthen wall has now been installed here to provide a view of the sauna complex Reduce. Furthermore, the beach has become much more open with a spacious one lawn and a sandy beach on the water. The undergrowth is at the & nbsp; trees removed so that here on hot days there is enough shade. At the toilet block is the rather steep meadow.

There is a small one on the nudist beach toilet block with an outdoor shower. The terrain is marked out with a low fence and is only accessible from one side. On a info board contains the rules of conduct. The bikes are removed from the site by a U-shaped entrance and must be placed in the bicycle shed. In front of disabled person is a gate present of which against payment of a deposit a key can be obtained.

The remaining 2 headlands where nude is recreated are separated by the water and can only go through the cycle path. There are no facilities here present. Perhaps to discourage nude recreation here a huge clearing took place at the end of 2018. There is a kind open park landscape without undergrowth created with complete transparency. The gravel paths are complete due to the heavy equipment destroyed, making the area less accessible. Leisurelands employees with BOA powers regularly supervise here and threaten to penalize nude visitors, as the area is not designated for nude recreation.
Some pictures of the construction here te find.

The (clear) bathing water on the official nudist beach is easily accessible via the sandy beach. Unfortunately, the bottom here runs extremely steeply, which means it bathing water is only suitable for experienced swimmers. There is no swimming area delimited by a floating line. Also experienced swimmers have difficulty climbing out of the water again because the soil is not stable. It is 3 to 4 meters from the side water too deep to stand. Leisurelands is per letter of this situation, but want this do not take measures during the season and comes with generalities: "I would like to point out that a water depth of 10 whether 30 centimeters of potential is life-threatening.
