Zeeland is the most South-Western province in the Netherlands. It’s a very popular tourist destination as it has many miles of beaches and nice beach towns. On this page I’m sharing my travel blog on Zeeland, the Netherlands.
The province Zeeland is divided in several islands and peninsula’s. My favorite is the region called Walcheren. Here you find three nice cities, that I’ll describe in this travel blog: Middelburg, Domburg and Vlissingen.
Middelburg is the biggest city of Walcheren and the capital city of Zeeland. It’s a great city with many restaurants and shops. I can walk around Middelburg for hours, there are so many lovely streets!
It almost looks photoshopped but it isn’t, this was a summer evening in Middelburg. Middelburg has a lovely harbour, where I took this picture. The picture at the top of this page is also the harbour in Middelburg, but then in the morning.
The only downside of Middelburg is that it isn’t located at the beach. Vlissingen, just a short ride south of Middelburg, does have a beach. It’s a lovely little town with several restaurants, a nice harbour and a boardwalk.
If you’re looking for a hotel in Zeeland, I recommend Boulevard17 in Vlissingen. They’ve got beautiful suites overlooking the sea. The hotel is brand-new and the rooms are super comfortable.

My travel blog on Zeeland continues with Domburg. Domburg is mostly known for its large beach. It has a long strip of soft white sand beach. I also love the pastel colored beach houses. Here you see me in Domburg when I just got back from a trip to Ibiza and I was really tanned.
My favorite restaurant in Domburg is beach restaurant Oase. They’re open for lunch, snacks and dinner. You can sit inside or on their terrace, depending on the weather.
Another nice spot at the beach is beach pavilion De Stenen Toko. After a day on the beach you can roll straight in. I had this veggie burger there.
Hulst is a small city in Zeeuws Vlaanderen, the bottom part of Zeeland. It’s an old fortified town with several nice shops and restaurants. You can walk the ramparts surrounding the town when you feel like a nice walk with views over the town and the water. You can also visit the Drowned Land of Saeftinghe. A piece of land between water and sea that used to be inhabited.
For lunch I recommend Koffiebar de Beleving. They’ve got sandwiches, soups and grilled cheese, and above all a nice atmosphere. You can also go for coffee, tea and cakes or book a high tea. My favorite sandwich is the vegetarian version of De Beleving as you see pictured above.
For dinner I recommend restaurant Het Bonte Hert. Good vegetarian restaurants are hard to find in Hulst, but restaurant Het Bonte Hert has 4 great vegetarian dishes on their dinner menu. The camembert from the oven is delicious. But my favorite is the fettuccini with mushrooms.
Looking for a nice holiday home in Hulst? I recommend Zeekraal Vakantiewoning. It’s a lovely house just outside of Hulst that sleeps 6 adults (and optionally a baby). It’s got a comfortable living room, a kitchen that has everything you need, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an infra-red sauna and a big lawn. Click here to read more about Zeekraal Vakantiewoningen.
