Marina Port Zélande/Brouwersdam
The Brouwersdam was ready in 1971 and is part of the Deltawerken. The Deltawerken protects the south west of The Netherlands against flooding. The Brouwersdam is 6500 meters long. It created the Grevelingen lake which is with 140km2 the biggest salt water lake in Europe and used for recreation and sailing. It’s filled with (salt)water from the Northsea. The water is very clean and clear, the Grevelingen is the most popular scuba-diving location in The Netherlands.
It’s also a very popular location for sports, sailing and kitesurfing because it’s very wind ‘secure’ and the area with the most sun hours in The Netherlands.
Places like Scharendijke, Brouwershaven, Renesse are popular holiday destinations.
The beach is ‘just across the road’ at the venue. With beach clubs and typical beach activities. It’s a very popular area the go cycling (rental bikes are available). For windsurfing or kitesurfing it’s the ‘hotspot’ in The Netherlands.
