Schouwen-Duiveland is surrounded by water: the North Sea to the west, the Grevelingenmeer to the north and the Oosterschelde to the south. The proximity to the water has shaped the nature and life on the island. Come, let's discover the island together.
Exploring the coast
There is much to discover along the coast of Schouwen-Duiveland. Hop on your bike and cycle through the unspoiled nature of the island. Or put on your walking shoes and climb the dunes. At the top, you can enjoy the beautiful view of the North Sea stretching as far as the eye can see.Out into nature
Cimb the tower
The breathtaking views over the Oosterschelde and nature reserve Koudekerkse inlagen make the 23-meter high "fat tower" worth a climb.
Discover Plan Tureluur
The observation tower looks out over Plan Tureluur. With a bit of luck, you can spot birds like godwits, spoonbills and avocets. The redshank, which you will recognize by its red stilts, also feels at home here.
Jump into Grevelingenmeer
Grevelingenmeer (lake grevelingen) is the place to be for water enthusiasts: Go on a sailing trip, try stand-up paddling, go snorkeling and diving, hop on your surfboard, or simply relax at the beach.
Stroll through Zierikzee
With more than 500 protected monuments, a visit to Zierikzee is always a journey back in time. Stroll for hours through streets and alleys with old cobblestones, historic drawbridges, and restored boats.
