Today we arrive in Zeeland for our Holland Holiday tour. This is where to enjoy the most beautiful beaches with clear seawater and culinary highlights from the sea like mussels and lobster. If you want to know everything about Zeeland, go to one of the museums or discover everything about the Delta Works at Deltapark Neeltje Jans.
These are the top 3 things you should not miss when in Zeeland:
1. The Beach, the beaches of Zeeland are well known to be safe and clean. Variety comes in the beaches: endlessly long and spacious, or small and intimate on unique bays. You can even spend your nights sleeping on the beach. There are beach hut accommodations all over Zeeland.
2. Oosterschelde National Park, this national park is surrounded not by fences, but simply by the waters of the Oosterschelde. An excursion boat will take you on sea safari, to look for seals and porpoises. The seals show off at low tide, worshipping the sun on the sandbanks. Porpoises have other ways, letting you perhaps catch a view of their dorsal fin as they swim past.
3. The Delta Works, visit the biggest storm surge barrier in Zeeland. This unique structure was built to prevent floods like the 1953 North Sea Flood, which the Dutch call the Watersnoodramp. With its 3 kilometres, the Oosterscheldekering is the longest component. Nearby you will find Deltapark Neeltje Jans, where you can learn more about nature on and beneath the water.
