Waterdunen - Nature
Waterdunen, situated in the beautiful West-Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. This area, where nature, recreation, and coastal defence merge, is a must-see for every visitor. Wander through the dynamic landscape and experience how the sea water transforms the area twice daily. Safely behind the dykes, you can enjoy tranquil walks in every season and observe the abundant birdlife.
The Robust Waterdunen
Waterdunen is not only a sanctuary for birds but also serves as a bastion against flooding. Thanks to an innovative tidal sluice, there's ebb and flow behind the dyke, giving the area its unique character. At the same time, it provides space for a holiday park that blends harmoniously into the surroundings and contributes to the local economy. It serves as a testing ground for entrepreneurs who cultivate saline vegetables and shellfish.
Waterdunen Welcomes You
Since September 2019, the landscape of Waterdunen has been enriched with salt water, resulting in an explosion of flora and fauna. The architecturally unique bridges and covered bird hides offer visitors a remarkable view and the chance to spy on birds up close. For a deeper insight, join a nature guide from Het Zeeuwse Landschap.
Taste the Salty Flavour of Waterdunen
