The Walking Network is a network of specially- designed footpaths that takes walkers past the most beautiful parts of Zeeland: its fields, waterways, polders, dunes and ancient dikes. Large parts of the network often disallow anyone not on foot and the junctions are all clearly signposted. This means you are free to plan your very own route to suit your abilities and requirements. And then there is only one thing left to do: enjoy the peace and quiet, and the views! For more information about The Walking Network.
There is nothing quite like riding a horse along the seashore and from 16 September to 14 May, beaches are open for a gallop through the surf. The beaches are open to horse riders at any time before 10.00 hours and after 19.00 hours. There are also numerous bridleways leading to the beaches, woods and nature areas. The bridleways are part of the large Cycle and Walking Network of routes that is free to use in the region.
