Cruising and Travel

Zeeland Province is made up of many islands and peninsulas connected by bridges and dams. It literally is a sea-land. Its very flat terrain makes the Zeeland Seaports area ideal for bicyclers. The area also offers a magical maritime environment formed by the delta of three rivers and clusters of islands that are perfect for boat and fishing trips. Its blend of quaint seaside villages and modern inland towns offers something for everyone. For more information on the many things to see and do in Zeeland Seaports, visit the province's tourism website.
