#1 Zierikzee

Zierikzee is without doubt one of the most beautiful places in Zeeland. Not only because of the cozy atmosphere, but also because of the large number of monuments. Admire the rich history of this beautiful port city, sit on the terrace for a delicious snack and buy a nice souvenir at the cozy shops. Do you like to learn more about the national monuments? Then you can also choose to book a guided city walk.

#2 Grevelingenmeer

Another great place for a holiday in Zeeland is the Grevelingenmeer. This is one of the largest saltwater lakes in Western Europe, where you can book many nice campsites, hotels or holiday homes. Moreover, the lake is a mecca for water sports enthusiasts! From surfing to diving and from fishing to boating: it’s all possible here! Do you want to go on holiday with a group of friends (or the whole family) and are you looking for a group accommodation in Zeeland ? Then you have come to the right place at the Grevelingenmeer.

#3 Zoutelande

Zoutelande is a charming village on the former island of Walcheren. Here everything revolves around the beach, sea, sun and fun! It is therefore not for nothing that Zoutelande is one of the most popular seaside resorts in Zeeland. In addition to the beautiful dunes (where you can walk), you will also find beautiful wide beaches and plenty of opportunities to do fun things. You can learn to surf, parasail or visit old museums. Would you like to enjoy a well-deserved holiday with a group of friends? Then Zoutelande is one of the most beautiful places for a holiday in Zeeland.


#4 Flushing

Vlissingen is perhaps one of the nicest coastal towns in the Netherlands. You can take a beautiful walk along the boulevard, eat freshly caught fish at the fishmonger, shop in the atmospheric center or just relax on the beach. And the nice thing is: from the boulevard you regularly see large ships sailing by. These sail near the coast, on their way to the famous harbour. Do you like culture and history? Be sure to visit the Zeeland Maritime MuZeeum.

#5 Middelburg

Middelburg is the capital of Zeeland and should of course not be missed in this overview. It is a city with a rich history, nice shops and some beautiful sights. For example, get lost through the many old alleys and take a look around the town hall and the ‘Lange Jan’ abbey tower. Do you like good food? Then settle down somewhere on the terrace and taste the local delicacies: oysters, mussels and freshly caught fish.

#6 Veere

A tiny village on the Veerse Meer with a gigantic church and a cozy harbor: that’s the best way to describe Veere. The village is not very big, but is nevertheless definitely worth a visit. For example, take a walk along the city walls, get on a boat to discover the Veerse Meer and then enjoy a delicious snack on the terrace. That doesn’t sound bad, does it?


#7 Domburg

The picturesque Domburg is seen by many as one of the most beautiful places for a holiday in Zeeland. And to be honest, somehow I understand. All the ingredients for a well-deserved holiday are here! From cozy (fish) restaurants to a beautiful sandy beach and from a large number of ice cream parlors to nice beach bars. Especially during the summer, the atmospheric center bustles and you experience the real holiday feeling in your own country!


#8 Renesse

If you think of the most beautiful places for a holiday in Zeeland, Renesse will undoubtedly come to your mind. This popular seaside resort has been considered one of the nicest seaside resorts in the Netherlands for years. Not only because of the extremely wide beaches, but also because of the range of restaurants, terraces and cafes. Previously, Renesse was especially popular with young people , but nowadays it is also a nice place to go on holiday with the children.

#9 The Delta Works and Neeltje Jans

Have you ever heard of Neeltje Jans? The Delta Works were built from this ‘work island’ and today this island is an information and amusement park. For example, you can learn more about the flood disaster, take a cruise through De Oosterschelde National Park or watch sea lions and seals perform their tricks during feeding time. Especially if you go on holiday with young children, a visit to Neeltje Jans is highly recommended.

#10 The beach of Burgh-Haamstede

We conclude the list of the most beautiful places in Zeeland with the beach of Burgh-Haamstede. As far as I’m concerned, this is the most beautiful beach in the entire province. And the good thing is: it is relatively quiet here compared to other beaches. This is partly because the beach is nice and wide and there is always a place to throw out your towel. Incidentally, there can be a lot of wind here, making it an ideal place for (kite) surfing.
