The Hondsbossche Zeewering is a 5.5 km long dike near Petten, at a place where a storm surge broke through the original dunes in the Middle Ages. The Hondsbossche Zeewering has a long history of storm damage and dyke repair.The current dike body has been there since 1880 and has since been raised and widened several times. Due to the constant erosion of the adjacent dunes, the seawall has increasingly come to lie in the sea. By means of coastal defense measures such as sand replenishment, the aim is to strengthen the sea walls and guarantee safety.
