Hook of Holland (Dutch Hoek van Holland or De Hoek, literally "The Corner") is a small town on the Nieuwe Waterweg ship canal near the North Sea coast in Rijnmond. It is well connected to the nearby regional hub, Rotterdam. Most notable for travellers is Hook's ferry port, which has had services to the East of England since 1893.
There are two railway stations. Hoek van Holland Haven is close to the town centre and adjacent to the ferry terminal. Hoek van Holland Strand is near the beach.
