Majestic flora and fauna
The entire province, which is isolated from the dune stream, lies below or at sea level. The landscape in Zeeland can be seen as a patchwork of dikes and polders, including one of the oldest polder landscapes of the Netherlands - Zuid-Beveland. There are a few nature reserves like Het Zwin and Boswachterij Westerschouwen where you can take long walks in the dunes or forests. Zeeland's animal life can mostly be found under the water. The many ponds, including the Grevelingen and the Oosterschelde, form a habitat of all kinds for animals, such as shrimps, oysters, crabs, lobsters, and various other types of fish. In the Grevelingen there are no ebb or flow movements. Here live mainly animals that need calmer water, such as the various species of sturgeon shrimp. In the Oosterschelde, underwater life is more interesting. There is an enormous supply of plankton by the current, which makes aquatic life overwhelming in some places. The western part, which is closest to the North Sea, is very popular with fish such as cod, sea bass, and the dead man's finger, a type of seaweed. In quieter places, you can encounter tube worms and flatfish on the sandy bottom.
What can you do during your b&b trip to Zeeland?
Zeeland is, of course, the province par excellence for a visit to the beach in the Netherlands. You can also get a breath of fresh air while walking on the dunes and you can relax in one of the many beach pavilions. Zeeland has divided its beaches into three categories: natural, family, and water sports. On the natural beaches, you will find unique plants such as the sea holly and sea fennel and animals like the nightingale and highland cattle. At the beach 't Zwin you can even find old shark teeth!

Oosterschelde National Park
The Oosterschelde National Park actually consists of several parts. For example, there is the Oosterschelde, a sea arm, which originally is a branch of the river Scheldt. In addition, Plan Tureluur is also part of the large National Park. This is a project that has been set up to offer birds, in particular, an extensive foraging area. The project is named after the bird “Redshank”, which feels very much at home over there. The redshank is therefore numerous and quite easy to spot if you pay a visit to this part of the Oosterschelde National Park. In addition to the Redshank, Plan Redshell provides a good foraging spot for many thousands of birds, during winter, summer, and migration time, including many waders.
The flora in Oosterschelde National Park is mainly determined by the salty soil that can be found in most of this national park. Sea lavender and samphire are one of the best-known plants that feel at home on this soil. These plants can therefore be found in the vicinity of the Oosterschelde. The fauna in the Oosterschelde National Park is also very unique. Many different bird species can be observed in this National Park. Especially waders such as golden plover, avocet, curlew, and various sandpipers feel at home in the mudflats and salt marshes that the area has to offer. Seabirds, including various gull species, can also be found in this large nature reserve. In addition to the many different bird species that can be observed in Plan Tureluur, among others, seals can also be seen in the waters of the Oosterschelde. If you are lucky enough, you can also spot porpoises. So, there is plenty to do in the Oosterschelde National Park.
