Zeeland is within easy driving distance of the bustling, well-connected urban hubs of Rotterdam and Amsterdam and yet with its fresh sea air, wide spaces and endless horizons, it feels like a complete break from city life. Staying at In de Bongerd or De Oase gives you the chance to explore Zeeland’s beaches, national parks, history and ingenious flood-prevention engineering. While you're in the region don't miss out on great cultural events like the 'Concert at Sea' music festival or the annual bolus baking competition.

Fabulous coastline, beautiful countryside, fascinating history and culture… there’s so much to explore and enjoy when you holiday at one of our parks in Normandy or Brittany

Zeeland Nature

Beaches
Just a 10 minute bike ride from Siblu’s In de Bongerd holiday park is the beautiful Oostkapelle beach. Ranked one of the cleanest beaches in the Netherlands it is an ideal spot for swimming, water sports, sandcastle building and sunbathing. Meanwhile, just over a mile away from Siblu’s De Oase you’ll find Renesse Strand, a long sandy beach bordered by greenery. It has its own parking area but you can also make the most of a shuttle bus from De Oase campsite during the summer months

Brouwersdam Marina
During most of the year, the calm and protected waters of the Brouwersdam marina (which forms part of the Delta Works flood protection system) is an ideal location for activities such as kite-surfing and windsurfing. However, for three days every summer (usually in June), it transforms into a huge festival ground as it hosts the ‘Concert at Sea’ one of Zeeland’s biggest and most popular festivals. Past line ups have featured a range of international stars, including legendary Irish rock group ‘The Script’.

De Manteling Nature Reserve
For a relaxing stroll or a gentle bike ride, make sure you take the time to visit the green forests, winding paths and diverse wildlife of De Mantling nature reserve (which runs along the coastline just 2.5 miles from In de Bongerd holiday park). ‘Mantel’ means overcoat in Dutch and the forest gets its name because the trees act as a protection against any strong sea winds. This sheltered spot was popular with wealthy local merchants in the 17th and 18th centuries and many of their houses and gardens can still be seen and visited today.

History & Culture in Zeeland

child friendly activities
Museums & theme parks
Zeeland’s unique location and history means that it has unparalleled experience in the development and use of flood-prevention technology. The ‘Delta works’ is an impressive feat of engineering, an extensive flood protection system consisting of a series of dams and storm surge barriers. The Delta works was developed following the tragic events of the North Sea Flood in 1953 which hit low-lying Zeeland especially hard. You can learn more about Zeeland’s relationship with the sea at the Watersnoods Museum or at Deltapark Neeltje Jans, an amusement park and museum built in the middle of the 8km-long Delta works flood protection system. For more about the maritime history of Zeeland check out the muZEEum in Vlissingen.

Middelburg
Zeeland also has a rich and fascinating history when it comes to trade and invention, something that becomes particularly evident when you take the time to wander along the streets and canals of Middelburg, the region’s picturesque capital. Middelburg’s strategic coastal position means that its history as an important trading port and city stretches back to the Middle Ages. Later, during the 17th century it became an important hub of the ‘Dutch Golden Age of Science and Technology’ thanks to its speciality craft at the time, lens-making. The first ever microscopes and telescopes may even have been created here. There are loads of things to discover in Middelburg to give you a sense of this long history: check out the Zeeuws Museum, the Rijksmonument Kuiperspoort or the Oostkerk church for starters.

Food & drink
For the foodies among us, Zeeland has plenty to offer. Seafood is obviously a speciality here so oysters, mussels and lobsters have to be on the menu, and the Eastern Scheldt estuary is home to a lobster with a unique soft and sweet taste that you won’t find anywhere else. For a traditional sweet delicacy make sure to get a taste of the ‘Zeeuwse bolus’, a pastry made with white bread dough, brown sugar, lemon zest and cinnamon, best enjoyed with a cup of coffee and a slab of butter. The bolus originates from the local Jewish community and has become such a staple part of the Zeeland culture that bolus baking championships are held here every year... May the best baker win!
