Cycle route along the Zeeland Riviera
Domburg, Westkapelle, Zoutelande
If you cycle along the coast between the city of Domburg and the village of Zoutelande, you are guaranteed to pass Westkapelle. Domburg is the third oldest seaside town in the Netherlands. The beach between Zoutelande and Westkapelle is called the Zeeland Riviera because it is one of the few beaches in the Netherlands facing south. Westkapelle was almost completely destroyed in October 1944 as a result of the Inundation of Walcheren, or, as they call it in Westkapelle, 't Bombardement. The Allies bombed sea dikes to flood the island of Walcheren in order to more easily chase away the German occupiers. The bay in Westkapelle, called 't Gat, still reminds of this bombardment.
