Holiday Park Zeedijk is a comfortable and sustainable place to stay just outside Herkingen. A holiday park with luxury holiday homes where peace and space are paramount. Less than 200 meters from the park you enter the Slikken van Flakkee nature reserve. This pristine nature reserve lies against the Grevelingenmeer and consists of a mixture of dried-up soil, shallow water and mudflats and salt marshes that have eventually been sown with rye, grasses and thickets. Nature is allowed to take its course in large parts of this area. If you are lucky you can see the groups of deer, heck cattle and fjord horses. Halfway through this nature reserve there is another beach, where you can take a nice dip in the Grevelingen in the summer.
At Stellendam you leave the nature reserve and pass Landwinkel Keijzer via the Damweg. This country shop sells beautiful local products, but you can also enjoy a drink in the tea garden. Via the Langeweg, you continue your way through the Voorstraat. At the end of this street you will find 't Wapen van Stellendam. Here you can go for a cup of coffee to an extensive dinner.
Then you pass on your route along the Eendrachtsweg / Eendrachtsdijk, Landschapscamping de Vlugtheuvel. An excellent location for an overnight stay with a camper, tent or caravan. Via the Plaatweg, Zomerweg you come back to the Langeweg and your route goes past beautiful polder landscapes. Junctions 43, 47, 77 and 44 take you past Dirksland. A hospital is located in Dirksland which fulfills a regional function.
You enter the village of Herkingen via the Geldersedijk, Zuiddijk and Molendijk. If you continue on the Kaaidijk you will find the 2 marinas of Herkingen at the end of it, but also a beach where you can enjoy the salty water of the Grevelingen.
