Cycling across Schouwen-Duiveland and Noord-Beveland you can enjoy views of the sea and the Oosterschelde. You will also experience plenty of cultural history, because you drive over Neeltje Jans and through Zierikzee.
The infamous All Saints' Flood of 1532 flooded all of North Beveland. It took more than sixty years before people dared to reclaim the island. On the north side of the island you can still see that caution in the many inlets: small polders that lie behind the sea dike in places where it was feared a dike breach. From the dike you can look out over a unique beautiful nature. You see wet marshes, reed beds and of course the water of the Oosterschelde. Magnificent!
In Burgh you can make a cozy pit stop at Pannekoekenmolen de Graanhalm. The mill dates from 1847. A little further on you will pass the former ring wall that was raised at the end of the ninth century against predatory Normans. You get a wonderful glimpse into the past here! You drive through the Schelphoek nature reserve to the historic fortified town of Zierikzee.
Neeltje Jans served as a work island during the construction of the storm surge barrier. Over the years, the wind and weather have turned Neeltje Jans into a beautiful dune landscape that is held together by beach grass and sea buckthorn. On the island you can visit an information center about the Delta Works. In 2015 the second Tour stage ended on Neeltje Jans. Sprinter André Greipel was the first to cross the line.
