About this route

Cycle along the coast and into the Western Zeeland-Flanders hinterland, in this route (39 km).

The coastal cycle path of Western Zeeland-Flanders is the heart of this route (39 km), providing panoramic views of the Westerschelde and North Sea alike.

The Dutch-Belgian dune area is dissected by a wide canal, the Zwin, formerly a key maritime trade route to Bruges. Nature has reclaimed it, in a flurry of salt marshes, mud flats and sandy shores. At low tide, you can even walk to Knokke.

More nature-traversing can be done across the Verdronken Zwarte Polder and the newly minted nature reserve Waterdunen. If you need a breather, just steer your bike to villages like Breskens, Cadzand or Retranchement.
