No sailing trip in Zeeland is complete without a visit to the Veerse Meer. This lake was created by damming the Veerse Gat for the Delta Works. The Veerse Meer is 22 kilometres long and the total width varies from 150 to 1500 metres, with a total shore length of 55 kilometres. The depth of the lake varies tremendously, with a maximum of 25 metres and an average of 5 metres.
The lake attracts sailors, anglers and recreational divers and offers ample opportunities for surfing and cable skiing. There are 3500 mooring spots for pleasure crafts around the lake.
In terms of ambiance and atmosphere, this area can easily be compared to the Grevelingen. The saltwater is crystal clear and there is an abundance of wildlife. Its narrow, elongated shape is mostly well-sheltered. A visit to the authentic town of Veere is certainly worth the trip. From the Veerse Meer, you can take a shortcut through the channel to the picturesque city of Middelburg and the maritime city of Vlissingen.
