Exploring Breskens, a Bustling Little Harbor Town

Exploring Breskens, a Bustling Little Harbor Town, Breskens, Netherlands (B)

In December author Daphne explored Breskens, a bustling little harbor town on the Westerschelde in the province of Zeeland, in the south-western Netherlands. The town lies directly behind the dunes and is well worth a visit. 

In this post, you will find out more about the charming harbor town, how to reach Breskens, what to do in Breskens, where to drink and dine, and where to stay overnight.

The charming harbor town has its own fishing port, a marina with 850 moorings, many beach pavilions, a variety of shops, and fantastic terraces. In addition to the beach and the sea, there is plenty to see and to do in Breskens and its surrounding area. Since the 20th century the fishing industry has declined, but its memory lives on in a fishery museum in the harbour. The town is well known for the Visserijfeesten (Fishery Festival), the largest festival in Zeeland and is the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful view of the sea as you stroll along the beach.
