    Zeeland for everybody!

The power of Zeeland It’s all in the name: Zee (sea) + Land

On the one hand, the rugged wildness of the water in combination with the Netherlands’ clean beaches, and on the other the lovely, endless green polders, historical cities, romantic vistas and picturesque views. No other province in the Netherlands can offer these two extremes within its boundaries. Zeeland is unique in that respect. A combination of opposites that works like a magnet on people that can feel it.

Colijnsplaat lies at the foot of the Zeelandbrug on the island of Noord Beveland, the next but one smallest island in Zeeland and the epicentre of the province with the most hours of sunshine in the Netherlands. Typical of this area are the dikes with their tall trees, old polders, beautiful creeks, endless country lanes edged with knotted willows, grasslands, tunes, sand and clay earth and gorgeous areas of natural beauty. The endless island is simply perfect for long walks or relaxing bike rides.


Within walking distance of Parc Ganuenta, the fishing village of Colijnsplaat, with its unique Voorstaat, offers various attractive restaurants and shops in an atmosphere of times gone by. Freshly caught fish is brought here every Thursday and you can see how the fish are auctioned at the fish market. The adjacent marina is open all year round and offers more than enough opportunities for both active and passive sailors.

Fresh fish

From Colijnsplaat, you can quickly reach sights in every direction, from Zierikzee to Middelburg and other monumental cities in the immediate surroundings where pavement cafes, interesting shops and cultural surprises lie in wait.

Last but not least: ‘sun-sea-sand’; whether you’re at the neighbouring beach with its unique natural swimming pool or the nearby Noordzeestrand: the beach of your choice is never far away!
