National Park Oosterschelde is a conservation area and scuba diving hotspot. The Oosterschelde is by far the wettest national park of the Netherlands. It is a world of changing tides, the wind and especially water, a lot of water. Because of the tidal movement, the landscape is constantly changing. At low tide, you see the sandbars and mudflats; at high tide, the wind and the water interact. Underwater a stunning world of colour awaits you. The people from Zeeland have been living with the sea for centuries. You can still see traces behind the dykes of creek areas and areas where people used to dig up clay.

Information points

At the information point 'De Duikbril' at one end of Kattendijksedijk you can learn more about the underwater world. At the entry to the Kanaal door Zuid-Beveland (Zuid-Beveland Canal) across from the radar post, you will find information point ‘'t Schip’. Here you can learn more about the vessels that sail the Oosterschelde river.

For more information about the National Park, please visit the website of Nationaal Park Oosterschelde.

Tidal troughs

Between the two beaches, four tidal troughs have been placed. At high tide, they disappear from view, but at low tide they hold the water and can be approached. This gives you the perfect opportunity to see the underwater world from up close, with its different seaweeds, shrimps, anemones and young fish. And you won’t even get wet!
