Life's a peach when you're at the beachRenesse's beautiful sandy beach stretches out as far as the eye can see, almost 17km. It is handily divided into sections according to activities. A family beach with all the expected facilities such as play areas, cafes and toilets. A luxurious area filled with higher end terraces and seaside restaurants. A stretch specially designed for high energy watersports such as sailing and windsurfing and even a nudist area for those of us who like to truly 'get back to nature'.
Seal SpottingThe clean water, space and tranquility attract not only thousands of visitors of the two-legged variety but also an increasing number of Seals and Porpoises to the area. Seals are spotted regularly at the Brouwersdam end of the beach where the Kop van Schouwen nature reserve begins. Don't forget to pack your binoculars when planning a stay in a Bed and Breakfast Renesse, you wouldn't want to miss anything while biking or hiking amongst the sandy dunes and grasslands.
Sun, Sea and ShellfishWhere better to get the freshest lobsters and mussels than directly by the sea they were caught in this very morning. The Zeeland Oyster is well renowned and can be found in eateries all over the island for every budget and taste. Feel free to ask your friendly hosts at your Bed and Breakfast Renesse for insider recommendations. For a sweet treat try a Zeeuwse Bolus, a twist of dough covered in burnt caramel. Delicious!
Village LifeStay at a Bed and Breakfast Renesse in the tiny village nearby. With its 15th century gothic church and medieval castle and grounds it provides a welcome respite for when you're tired of the beach. Or in the unlikely event that it rains!
