Vuurtoren Westerlicht

The most famous building in Haamstede is the Lighthouse Westerlicht. And therefore really belongs among these must-sees. Older generations will probably remember that the lighthouse was once on the 250 guilder note. The tower rises 53 meters above ground level and is still used as a beacon for shipping. The light from the tower shines thirty nautical miles away and the lantern has a luminosity of 5.2 million candelas.

On a seal safari in the Oosterschelde

One of the best ways to spot seals and porpoises is from a boat in the middle of the water. There is a very good chance that you will spot seals on the sandbars. The skipper knows exactly when and where the seals rest after their hunt for fish. Porpoises also regularly swim near the boat. Along the way you will receive information about the Oosterschelde National Park and about the animals that live here. Boat trips depart from the ports of Burghsluis, Zierikzee, Bruinisse and Sint-Annaland (Tholen).

Slot Haamstede

A castle with a moat, an old castle forest and an adjacent dune area with views and bird watching spots. Slot Haamstede nature reserve on Schouwen-Duiveland has it all. The nature reserve owes its name to the fairytale-like castle from the early 17th century. Inside everything takes you back in time: from the atmospheric knight's hall with beamed ceiling to the tiled floor, the furniture and the coat of arms above the fireplace. Have a look inside? You can visit the castle with its walled castle forest on open heritage days and during excursions and special activities. Read more about organized walks at Landgoed Slot Haamstede here:
