The smell of salty sea air, and the wind in your hair: What else can you wish for?
There are also some of the best and cleanest beaches in the Netherlands. With a large coastline it offers fun for the whole family. Take a trip to the most beautiful beach - Ouddorp and eat freshly caught fish and maybe ride the waves?
Zealand is also beautiful inland. Take a bicycle ride across the beautiful polder and reach the warm seaside resort of Renesse, Domburg and Cadzand. We recommend a visit to the beautiful city of Middelburg, Zierikzee and the fortified town of Sluis. Here you will find the most unique bell tower in the Netherlands.
