Ridge walking. A varied tour that runs over the edges of the soap bar. The dunes here are narrow, so you have nice trips to Land and Zee. Start in Vlissingen. It is the largest city in Walcheren and also Zeeland and together with Middelburg (the capital) it forms around 100,000 inhabitants. Vlissingen is the northern port of the Westerschelde and is, just like all those other places, occupied by everyone and everything. Michiel de Ruyter is pretty much the best known Vlissinger. It towers above everything there at the mouth of the harbor. Walk over the dune edges to Zoutelande and Westkapelle. It was in Westkapelle that the Gallies arrived in October 1944. These bombed the dikes to expel the Germans. The Westkapelle creek is still the saline remnant of that breakthrough. There is no dune here, the area is protected by a high dike. In Westkapelle you can still watch a tank and a landing boat in memory of that breakthrough during the bombing. 600 of the 650 houses were lost, killing 180 people. You won't find old houses here. The lamphouse stands on the tower of the Westkapelle church. Together with the small lighthouse on the beach, these two form a light line to mark the entrance to the Westerschelde. After Westkapelle the dam bends to the northeast on the way to Domburg. One of the oldest seaside resorts in the Netherlands where many artists settled in the previous (Toorop, Mondriaan).
