Geography

Towns situated on the lakefront include Aalsmeer, Kudelstaart, Leimuiden, and Rijsenhout.

The northern part in particular contains hundreds of small islands. Many of these are privately owned and can only be reached by boat.

Economy

The northwestern part of the lakes connect directly to the Ringvaart, which sees significant commercial shipping. The bulk of the lakes, though, are used mostly for recreational boating.
