Waterfront cottage rental in Zeeland

Imagine life in a waterfront vacation home in Zeeland already. You’ve booked a vacation home or apartment and wake up to the sound of waves and seagulls.

Per day see what the weather is and what you feel like doing. That’s the real vacation feeling! Sounds good, right? And then you can also choose between different destinations in Zeeland.

Vacations in Zeeland

Many tourists love Zeeland. They prefer to rent a waterfront cottage in Zeeland every year. Quite understandable, since the province has the most hours of sunshine in the Netherlands. This combined with the sea and beautiful dunes makes it an attractive vacation destination for tourists. A visit to Zeeland’s beaches is therefore highly recommended!

Discover over 10 kilometers of white and wide sandy beaches from Breskens to Cadzand where you can cycle well and find as many as 17 beach pavilions! Slide into a terrace and enjoy the sea view while enjoying a full bowl of mussels. These are the beaches you can’t miss here:

  • Breskens: a beach where there is a lot to see because you have a view of Vlissingen and see many large ships sailing along the shore.
  • Groede: a quiet beach ideal for families. Nice to also stop by play and bunker park Groede so the kids can climb and clamber in the play equipment and bunkers.
  • Nieuwvliet: a quiet beach close to the Verdronken Zwarte Polder nature reserve where the chances of finding shark teeth are highest. Fun to spend an afternoon searching together with the kids and take home as souvenirs.
  • Cadzand: a beautiful beach and child-friendly, but much busier with Belgian tourists because the beach is close to the border. Want to do water sports in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen? Then Cadzand is the place to be because of the beach clubs where you can book lessons or rent water sports equipment.

If you rent a waterfront cottage in Zeeland, it’s also fun to visit the island of Walcheren with its beautiful, expansive beaches.

  • Domburg: Zeeland’s oldest seaside resort is a great place to stay. Domburg beach extends to Westkapelle and is known for its characteristic beach houses. The nice thing about Domburg is that you’re also right in the center with dozens of restaurants and stores. So you can perfectly explore the village in the morning and relax on the beach in the afternoon.
  • Westkapelle: a wide beach with nice beach houses and the highest dunes in the Netherlands! Moreover, it is a wonderful place for hiking and biking.
  • Oostkapelle: Want to combine nature and beach? Then a visit to Oostkapelle is ideal for you. You’ll find large, wide beaches and you’ll be right in De Manteling and Oranjezon nature reserves.

Water activities at a waterfront cottage

In addition to Zeeland’s beaches, Zeeland also has wetlands where you can hike, bike or water sports. For example, you have National Park The Eastern Scheldt (the largest in our country) which consists mainly of water and tides. You can spot seals and porpoises on a cruise there. Moreover, the park has rich marine life making it the perfect place for divers.

Or how about canoeing, supping or surfing? For surfing, you have to be in Domburg. Not for nothing is Domburg in the top 5 best surf spots in the Netherlands. Here you have the advantage that the water is just a little warmer than the rest of the country, so put on your surf suit! Are you more into canoeing? Then we especially recommend Lake Veere. Ideal to do with the whole family and also suitable for beginners. Are you more advanced? Then a trip out to sea (kayaking) in the Delta area is a real challenge! So are you planning to book a waterfront cottage in Zeeland? Then definitely consider visiting some natural areas and try a (new) water activity!
