Schouwen-Duiveland

Local area

Schouwen-Duiveland is inseparably linked to the sea. The island is surrounded by the North Sea, Grevelingen and the Oosterschelde. The historic town of Zierikzee is situated in the middle of the island, and the beautiful villages and polders create a green borderland that invites you to discover nature’s beauty. At the heart of this is the village of Zonnemaire, close to the Grevelingen Lake. It’s a wonderful place to enjoy wildlife, explore endless hiking trails and, of course, the water itself. If you love birds, this is the place for you, and don’t forget to visit Plan Tureluur, the incredible 4400-hectare nature reserve for birds.
