Many of our holiday homes in Oostkapelle are located in this wooded area, but the beach is also close by. Put on your hiking boots and choose one of the surrounding nature reserves, the Manteling or Oranjezon.

The Manteling of Walcheren is Zeeland’s most varied coastal area. The hiking trails in this area lead you through forest, dunes and along the beach. Bring your binoculars, because there are also a lot of animals living in the Manteling. Who knows, maybe you’ll spot a deer. In addition, the area has a broad history with Kasteel Westhove (now a hostel) at the “center” of the Manteling. Want to learn more about the history of the area and empathize with the times of the past? Then visit Terra Maris! This is a museum in the Manteling and has exhibits on the nature and landscape of Zeeland. A nice change during the hike where you can enjoy a nice coffee on the terrace afterwards.

Another beautiful hiking area, near Oostkapelle, is Oranjezon. The Oranjezon nature reserve consists of sheltered dune valleys and forest and borders the beach. At Oranjezon, there are four hiking trails of varying lengths to follow. This allows you to decide whether you are ready for a long walk through the whole area or a faster short walk only through the woods. Don’t feel like cooking for yourself in your cottage after hiking? Then choose one of the restaurants in Oostkapelle. Enjoy delicious Zeeland seafood like Zeeland mussels or oysters here.
