Description

From De Bever Verhuur you go in the direction of lighthouse Westhoofd in Ouddorp.

Westhoofd is a national monument and one of the two lighthouses in the Netherlands that is still manned. Height is 56 meters and with a light intensity of 5,200,000 candela, this lighthouse has the strongest light beam in the Netherlands.
The Brouwersdam, completed in 1971, is the seventh building of the Delta Works.

You can get a breath of fresh air on the six and a half kilometer long dam. Here you have beautiful views of the North Sea and the Grevelingenmeer.

Would you like to spot seals? They like to swim on the sea side of the sluice in the Brouwersdam. To be on the safe side, bring binoculars. It is wonderful to drive along the dunes on Schouwen-Duiveland.
Further on you pass Slot Haamstede, a national monument from the thirteenth century. In 1525 the castle was almost completely destroyed by fire, after which the castle was rebuilt in the 16th century.

You go back via the inside of the Brouwersdam, with a view of the largest saltwater lake in Europe. At the end is the RTM museum. They have a fine collection of steam / diesel locomotives, carriages and freight wagons, which can still run. Walk around the depot and take a tour along the Grevelingenmeer! & Nbsp; The route ends at De Bever Verhuur.
