Sea, beach, dunes, wind, nature, space and openness: Schouwen-Duiveland has it all. Beautiful views over the water and the wind that blows in the dunes alternate with the flat, vast interior, characteristic villages and pleasant hamlets. You follow the coastal strip during the first part of the route and then cycle from village to village. With a bit of luck you will see a bat, and you will probably encounter one or more shetlanders. Those interested in cultural history will also be surprised about the value of Schouwen-Duiveland in this area, because the tour leads you past a beautiful castle. Slot Haamstede is an old castle that dates from the thirteenth century. In 1525 the castle was almost completely destroyed by a fire, forcing the castle to be rebuilt. The current fortress was therefore mainly built in the sixteenth century. The castle was last restored in 1973 and in 1981 it came into the hands of the Vereniging Natuurmonumenten. What is special is that the only deciduous forest of Schouwen-Duivenland can be found on the estate of Slot Haamstede.
