It's not a beach, but the area around the Veerse Meer is definitely worth a walk with your dog. The nature areas around the Veerse Meer have been designated as dog walking areas from 15 March 2021. Here, your dog is allowed to run free all year round - under proper supervision and on the paths, of course. However, here too, dogs must not disturb wildlife or bother other visitors. These rules make it possible for all visitors to enjoy their free time while respecting nature. In other parts of the area, dogs are welcome on a leash.
Dog walking areas are located in parts of: De Piet, De Schelphoek.
The Oosterschelde is the largest and wettest national park in the Netherlands. A world of tides, wind and especially water, lots of water.
