Scharendijke

After the completion of the Brouwersdam in 1972, Scharendijke, located on Schouwen-Duiveland in the province of Zeeland, has developed into a water sports center and has attracted many new residents as a result. With the North Sea beaches and the Grevelingenmeer within walking distance, Scharendijke is particularly ideal for surfing, sailing and diving. The divers in the Netherlands regard the diving areas "Koepeltje", "Scharendijke Haven" and "Nieuwe Kerkweg" as the hotspots of the Grevelingenmeer. On the outskirts of the village you will find the beautiful and well-kept marina.

Characteristic of Scharendijke are the "Muraltmuurtjes", ie the top of the dyke. This is a cost-effective solution for raising levees.

Scharendijke has a charming village street with several restaurants and shops.

Schouwen-Duiveland 

Camping De Witte Molen is located on Schouwen-Duiveland.

In the western corner of this northernmost part of Zeeland are the widest beaches in the province, with a total length of 17 kilometers. Directly behind the beach is a large forest and dune area, most of which is freely accessible with kilometers of cycle, hiking and horseback riding trails. Well-known seaside resorts are Renesse, Burgh-Haamstede and Scharendijke.
 
The center of Schouwen-Duiveland is the historic town of Zierikzee with well-preserved monuments and a cozy shopping center.
Renesse is only 4 km. and historic Zierikzee only 13 km. removed. To the south, Schouwen-Duiveland borders the Oosterschelde, a saltwater tidal area with unique flora and fauna.
A visit to the Delta Works in the Oosterschelde is well worth it.
North of Schouwen-Duiveland lies the Grevelingenmeer, a popular water sports area.
