Discover the loveliest little places and steep in nature's tranquillity
The island of Tholen, with its picturesque towns and villages, is a fascinating island. The many wildflower dikes and the narrow polder paths that lead you past charming fields of flowers make this area a very attractive destination for cyclists, skaters, and walkers. More than forty kilometres of sea walls protect the countryside against the onslaught of the sea. A large part of them also form an exhilarating bike route.
The countryside on the island of Tholen has been affected by man and has been culitivated. The south of the island, especially, was subjected to 'the shovel' following the disastrous flood of 1953. The mudflats and salt marshes outside the dikes are stopping places for water birds such as coots, ducks and waders. During bird migrations, they are favorite places for bird-watchers. From the dike you can enjoy the panorama of the passing and foraging birds. 'Prehistoric' Hekcattle graze on the mudflats of the 'Heen'.
