This route takes you through the eastern part of the Schouwen-Duiveland peninsula. You can enjoy a quiet polder landscape here and there with a beautiful village. Near the coast you cycle along dikes and creek areas full of birds that were created by the flood disaster of 1953.

Cycling from village to village
The start and end point of this route is Hotel Bru in Bruinisse. At restaurant Petit kitchen & bar you can have a nice lunch so that you can get off to a good start with the route. The eastern tip of Duiveland was surrounded by dikes in 1468. This village was then founded on that spot. Bruinisse is a real fishing village. Mussel farming in particular is an important source of income here. You then cycle further along the coast to Sirjansland. You cycle around this village through a vast polder landscape along the towns of Nieuwerkerk and Oosterland. In the center of Oosterland you will find the Oosterlandse molen, a flour mill from 1752. The mill is now kept running by volunteer millers. Then you cycle via Ouwekerk to the coast. The last part of the route takes you along the coast back to Bruinisse.
Creek area Ouwekerk
Near Ouwekerk you cycle through a 140 hectare creek area. A dike breach during the flood disaster of 1953 made this area unsuitable for agriculture. Since then, nature can take its course here. A forest was also planted in this area, where you can now find dozens of songbirds. You will also find all kinds of coastal birds along the water.
