Coming from a country with a lot of nature I was not really impressed by the area. Some small little lakes, a little bit of a vegetation and the lot of birds. Looking at the birds and the sea it's pleasant.

Visited the new Zwin. Although the entry fee isn't cheap, it was a worthwhile visit. Our kids of 2,5 and 5 loved the short "cabin walk" where there could see the birds up close.

This is a new (July 2016) visitor centre at the fascinating wetland centre. Excellent birdwatching opportunities, absorbing interpretation (flap your wings like a bird) and high quality modern, sustainable architecture. Well done.
