Get a breath of fresh air on the beach is always possible on Schouwen-Duiveland. The North Sea beach runs from the Oosterscheldekering to beyond the armpit of the Brouwersdam, which is more than 20 kilometers. Renesse lies about two thirds of this distance.
Of course you think at the beach on nice weather, but have you ever walked with wind force 5 against the wind in over the beach? After that you are completely refreshed to call it that.
The beaches of Schouwen are mostly wide, especially between Nieuw-Haamstede and Renesse. You can always find a good spot on the busiest summer days. And to ensure a pleasant day for everyone, the beaches are divided into different types: family beaches, natural beaches, (water) sports beaches and areas for nude recreation and extreme sports.
Each type of beach has its own rules so that everyone can safely recreate. These are listed on the signs at the beach crossings. The beach rescue brigade (all volunteers) keeps an eye on four posts during the summer season, two of which at Renesse.
Along De Brouwersdam, approximately from Beachclub Perry’s, there is room for extreme sports such as kite surfing, blokarting and stunt flying. Extreme water sports are also permitted at Watergat, beach crossing Julianahoeve, except kite surfing (due to the presence of seals). Spread over the more than 20 kilometers are fourteen beach pavilions. A number are also open in winter (holidays and weekends). That way you can always grab a terrace or use the toilet at any time.
To get to the beaches, it is useful to download the beach brochure or pick it up at one of the offices of the tourist office Schouwen-Duiveland. This brochure shows all options, as well as the 22 beach crossings. And they vary considerably in length, depending on the width of the dune bar. At the end of the Laone, for example, you are immediately on the beach after taking the stairs, while at the beach crossing the Duinhoevepad you first walk a long way through the dunes.
The beaches are kept clean. Every year, Schouwen-Duiveland receives a Blue Flag for several beaches (and marinas), the quality mark for clean and safe beaches and marinas. Dogs are allowed on all beaches, with the exception that between May 15 and September 15 they may only be there between seven in the evening and ten in the morning.
