Flower dikes of South Beveland - Heinkenszand

N 51.452088 / E 3.822524

Flower dikes can be found in this part of Zeeland. These dikes, some 80 kilometres long, have been constructed around polders and former tidal creeks. It is wonderful cycling here: in the spring the hawthorns bloom profusely and in the summer you can discover almost twenty endangered plant species. The wonderfully fragrant ground, the wild carnation, the woolly thistle and the wild marjoram. The fact that so many different plants can be found in the area is because the dikes are warm and sunny on the south side, cool and shady in the north, moist at the foot and drier on top. Alternating area also provides alternating animal richness: the flowers are attractive to insects and butterflies. Birds come here again such as the little owl and the kestrel. A good starting point is the sheepfold at Heinkenszand. A walking route over the dikes also starts there.
