Regions and locations in Zeeland

The province of Zeeland is divided into six different regions. On which island is the best place to book a vacation home in Zeeland and what are the differences between the regions? First, some facts about the province. Did you know that the names originated from the former and peninsulas? The name “Zeeland” also comes from here, as the islands are literally different pieces of “land in the sea. The islands at a glance:

Tholen is the ideal location if you love peace, nature and water. Discover the most beautiful places while walking or biking. Moreover, you will find a beautiful area full of mudflats and salt marshes where nature is breathtaking.

Schouwen-Duiveland is a versatile island where you can bike, hike, have many water activities and get out in nature. Fancy a visit to a city? Then the monument city of Zierikzee or the fishing village of Bruinisse are definitely recommended!

On North Beveland, you will experience the ultimate island feeling. On this island you will find small villages and vast polders. On South Beveland, on the contrary, you will be surprised by flower dikes and meadows, but you will also find nice towns like Goes and Yerseke.

Walcheren is a lively island with beautiful beaches and scenic areas. On Walcheren, there is something for everyone to discover. History and museums, relaxing on the beach or hiking through nature. Middelburg – the capital of Zeeland – is also not to be missed if you have booked a vacation home in Walcheren. But other famous places such as Veere, Domburg and Zoutelande are also worth visiting.

Zeeland Flanders is not an island or peninsula. The region can be reached from the Netherlands via the Westerschelde Tunnel, Westerschelde Ferry or via Belgium. Zeeland Flanders is characterized by the cleanest beaches, vast polders and burgundian atmosphere. Enjoy dinner in the fishing village of Breskens, stroll the streets of picturesque Groede or go shopping in Sluis. When staying in a vacation home in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, a visit across the border is also well worthwhile! Discover the hip seaside resort of Knokke or the authentic Bruges or Ghent.

In short, wherever you book your vacation home Zeeland, you will experience the fine Zeeland feeling in every region. Yet each island has its own characteristics. Plan some outings in different regions. Take the “Bresjes” ferry from Zeeland Flanders to Vlissingen to explore Walcheren. Listen to the locals, discover the landscapes, but above all, enjoy the beautiful islands and book a vacation home in Zeeland to the island that appeals to you most.
