Zeeland is a province located in the southwestern part of the Netherlands. A province is a group of islands and a strip of land, hence its name, which literally means sea land. Small parts of the land border with Belgium, North Brabant, and South Holland. Because several of these peninsulas have been isolated, each region has its own dialect. Zeeland is the tenth-largest province in the Netherlands with a total area of ​​2935 km², of which 1121 km² is a water area. Water plays an important role in Zeeland and is considered a common thread in the history of the province. The whole province, except the dune area, is below or at sea level. The landscape in Zeeland can be seen as a patchwork quilt made of dikes and polders. Geography has changed a lot in recent years. Many small islands have merged over time into larger peninsulas. There are also populated areas that are now underwater, such as the Verdronken Land van Zuid-Beveland and the Verdronken Land van Saeftinghe.

Nature of Zeeland

Zeeland has several nature reserves. Each area has its own unique flora and fauna. But together they show how closely water and land are connected. Something for every nature lover. It is worth every season. Take a walk around the areas or get a bike. And enjoy. Discover nature in Zeeland. Zeeland life is mainly underwater. Numerous aquatic features, including Grevelingen and Oosterschelde, are home to all kinds of animals: shrimp, oysters, crabs, lobsters, and various other species of fish. There are no tides in Grevelingen. Here live mostly animals that need calmer water, such as various species of shrimp. Underwater life is more interesting in Oosterschelde. There is currently a huge amount of plankton, which makes underwater life in some places amazing. The western part, closest to the North Sea, is very popular with fish such as cod, sea bass, and dead man's thumb, plankton filter. In quieter places, you can find tubeworms and flatfish on the sandy bottom.

Zeeland, where land meets water. Where you can see seals and guinea pigs, but also traces of the ancient battle against the sea. Old dike breaches have left streams and seeps, such as the North and South Braakman. The unstable forms of the Oosterschelde are a direct result of the struggle between land and water. But you will also find the largest salt marsh area in Europe, Het Verdronken Land van Saeftinge. If you dive in Oosterschelde, you will swim among the cuttlefish that come to mate here.

Diverse landscape from swamps, mud, polders, and dikes, but also forests and dunes. Zeeland has a very diverse landscape. The Tureluur Plan of Schouwen-Duiveland is a unique nature reserve, also called Zeeland’s Bird Boulevard. You will find forests, bushes, and dunes in Mantling at the top of the Walcheren. If you pay attention, see the fallow deer walking in the woods. Zeeland is part of Voordelta, a region off the coast of Zeeland and the islands of South Holland. Here the Meuse, the Rhine, and the Scheldt branch off before reaching the North Sea. This is a rich ecosystem with dozens of protected animal species. In Zeeland, for example, you will find the harbor porpoise or the harbor seal. Not protected, but special: the nesting area of ​​cuttlefish. Squid use Oosterschelde as a nursery. Clear water, tranquility, sandy beaches, lots of sun. No wonder the seal feels at home in the waters of Zeeland. In the Oosterschelde, Westerschelde and Grevelingen you regularly see a head with the characteristic large eyes protruding above the water. Or they sunbathe on one of the sandy beaches. You can see them from the shore. Or go on a seal safari and see them up close.

Attractions in Zeeland

In Zeeland, you can enjoy everything the sea has to offer. Popular cities such as Domburg, Yerseke, and Renese can be found near popular beaches. Enjoy culinary highlights directly from the sea and visit one of the highlights of the Netherlands in the constant battle against the sea: Delta Works. They have been carried out since 1960 as a result of the flood disaster of 1953. The introduction of the delta means that Zeeland is less isolated and easier to reach. Delta Works is definitely worth a visit. They are located in a beautiful area surrounded by beautiful beaches, beautiful nature and many good restaurants.

Want to learn more about the history of Zeeland? Visit the Zeeuws Museum in Middelburg and the Bevrijdingsmuseum Zeeland(Museum of Liberation) in Nieuwdorp. Here you can find everything about events such as the Great Flood of 1953 or the vital role that Zeeland played in the liberation of the nation during World War II. MuZEEum Vlissingen is the place where you can learn about the rich maritime past of the province.

During the great flood of February 1, 1953, large areas in the southwestern part of the Netherlands were underwater. Nearly 100 dikes were breached, costing the lives of 1,836 people, 200,000 hectares of land were flooded, thousands of animals drowned and many houses and buildings were damaged or destroyed. That was then. Much has been done since then to ensure the safety of the Netherlands, but floods can still occur. The history of this event can now be seen in the Flood Museum: "The National Center for Knowledge and Memories of the Great Flood of 1953." The Flood Museum is housed in the huge caissons that were used to close the last hole in the Owerkerk dike after the catastrophic flood. The museum is located in the exclusive Kraken Gebied area, or Fenland, which was formed by the disaster. The best way to discover Zeeland is from your own holiday home or hotel. See the selection to book your ideal accommodation: directly from the beach, surrounded by nature, or with luxury facilities such as a wellness center and spa.

Climate in Zeeland

The climate is temperate with cool summers, mild winters, and rainfall in all seasons. The climate is influenced by both the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea. The temperate climate offers clear winter and summer seasons. The influence of the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean leads to winters that are usually not too cold and summers that are not usually too hot. This also leads to a lot of showers and a lot of moisture in the air. Southern and western winds occur, and the sea reduces the climate with winds on land and the effect of the flood flow. The country's location is between a low-pressure region and its center in Iceland and a zone of high-pressure air masses centered in the Azores. The collision of air masses is usually due to the unsettled weather in the country.
