    The Delta Project should definitely be included in the tour.

    In the past, the Veerse Meer was a tributary of troubled, agitated waters, but after the storm surge of 1953 it was separated from the North Sea by dikes and dams. The Veerse Meer offers excellent conditions for sailing and windsurfing.

    The Veerse Meer is an inland water that was created by the Veerse Gatdam in 1961 as part of the Deltaplan. The Veerse Meer is the northeastern boundary of the peninsula Walcheren. In addition, the Veerse Meer separates the peninsula Zuid-Beveland and the "former island" Noord-Beveland

    The beach at Vrouwenpolder is very wide and flat, especially in the eastern area at the Gatdam. Unlike the other beach area on Walcheren, there are no wooden breakwaters here in the Uferbreich.

    The dam in the coastal province of Zeeland closes off the former Seearm Veerse Gat from the open North Sea, creating the Veerse Meer. On the east side of the water is connected via the Zandkreek with the Oosterschelde (Wikipedia).

    Before 1961, the Veerse Meer had a direct connection to the North Sea. With the construction of the Veerse Gatdam and Zandkreekdam in the east, the salinity of the water decreased sharply and the Gat became brackish, with all negative phenomena for life in and around the water (Wikipedia).

    The dam is 2.8 kilometers long, 14 m NAP high and leads from the peninsula Walcheren to the island of Noord-Beveland. Via the Veerse Gatdam leads the LF1 (North Sea Cycle Route). The Dammkrone is popular with skaters, cyclists and walkers.
