Breskens: fishing village and seaside resort

Breskens, a well-known seaside resort in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. Every summer this is the place to be for a wonderful beach holiday. The village is known for fishing, therefore a visit to the fishing and marina should not be missed. From the beach – east of the ferry port – you can walk right into downtown. On Spuiplein you will find dozens of cozy stores and restaurants where you can (of course) eat fish and other delicacies.

Vacations in Breskens

In the fishing village there is plenty to do. Sniffing out culture in the Fisheries Museum, enjoying culinary delights at a beach pavilion, discovering nature and much more. Due to the central location of the fishing village, you can easily and quickly visit the rest of Zeeland. The finest experience of all is, of course, in a holiday home on the coast. This way you can enjoy the time for each other, the peace and quiet and the space.

Spending your holiday in Breskens? That’s a lot of fun. There are so many fun things to do in this cozy fishing village! From enjoying yourself at a beach pavilion (such as at Shed 10 or BAZ) to visiting the Fisheries Museum where you will learn about fishing of the past and present in an interactive way.
