Walking for kilometres accompanied only by the sea, dunes and nature. That, according to the Zeeland inhabitants, is what you call a beach.

Aware of the imposing beauty, the local inhabitants are proud to show you what nature has to offer.
In the open water, particularly around the Schouwen-Duiveland headland, the sea lion population is still increasing.
