The small coastal town of Dishoek is known for its beautiful white sandy beach which, together with the beaches of Zoutelande and Westkapelle, is also called the Zeeland Riviera.
Without a doubt, the beaches of Vlissingen are one of the main attractions in the region. Traditionally, the Boulevard, the Badstrand and the Nollestrand attract many tourists in the summer months.
On these beaches there are special warning flags so you can see at a glance whether it is safe to swim.
