Cutting straight across the (former) isle of Walcheren, you will come upon dikes, woods and centuries old towns, such as picturesque Domburg, the oldest resort on the coast of Walcheren. The sand dunes are 50 meters high in places and offer great views of the wide beaches and the sea. Today’s main point of interest is world famous Oosterscheldekering. This is the Storm Surge Barrier, the largest, most ingenious and expensive of the Delta Works. Nine km long, connecting Noord-Beveland to Schouwen-Duiveland, initially it was planned as a closed dam. But under pressure from the fishing lobby and environmentalists, sixty-two big sliding sluice gates were installed in the dam. These steel doors are nearly always open, allowing sea water to pass, thus safeguarding Oosterschelde’s saltwater ecosystem. They close only when sea levels are expected to rise more than three meters. Halfway across the barrier, on an artificial island, lies Delta Park "Neeltje Jans”, Zealand’s number one tourist attraction, built around the Delta Expo. It offers illuminating insights into the Delta Works, why they were necessary, how they protect our coastline and relative environmental matters. But there’s more: a water theme park with a playground, an amazing waterslide, saltwater aquarium, sea lions’ show and more... Back on the isle of Schouwen-Duiveland, you will cycle through the tranquil woods of "Kop van Schouwen” nature reserve. At the end of the day, receive a warm welcome back at the hotel where you started out on this holiday.
