About Beaches Renesse
Get a breath of fresh air on the beach, which is always possible on Schouwen-Duiveland. The North Sea beach runs from the Oosterscheldekering to past the armpit of the Brouwersdam, which is more than 20 kilometers. Renesse is about two thirds of this distance.
Of course you think of good weather at the beach, but have you ever walked on the beach with wind force 5 against the wind? After that you are really completely refreshed, so to speak.
The beaches of Schouwen are predominantly wide, especially between Nieuw-Haamstede and Renesse. Even on the busiest summer days you can always find a good place. And to give everyone a pleasant day, the beaches are divided into different types: family beaches, natural beaches, (water) sports beaches and areas for nude recreation and extreme sports.
Each type of beach has its own rules so that everyone can safely recreate. These are stated on the signs at the beach crossings. The beach rescue brigade (all volunteers) keeps an eye on things in the summer season with four posts, two of which are at Renesse.
Along De Brouwersdam, approximately from Beach Club Perry’s, there is room for extreme sports such as kite surfing, blokarting and stunt kiting. Also at the Watergat, beach crossing Julianahoeve, extreme sports are allowed except kite surfing (due to the presence of seals). Fourteen beach pavilions are spread over more than 20 kilometers. Some are also open in winter (holidays and weekends). This way you can always grab a terrace or use the toilet at any time.
To get to the beaches, it is useful to download the beach brochure or to pick it up at one of the offices of the VVV Schouwen-Duiveland. This folder shows all options, as well as the 22 beach crossings. And they vary in length, depending on the width of the dune strip. For example, at the end of the Laone you will immediately be on the beach after you have taken the stairs, while at the beach crossing the Duinhoevepad you will first walk a long way through the dunes.
The beaches are kept clean. Every year, Schouwen-Duiveland receives a Blue Flag for several beaches (and marinas), the quality mark for clean and safe beaches and marinas. Dogs are allowed on all beaches, with the restriction that they may only be there between 7 pm and 10 am between 15 May and 15 September.
