Because of the beautiful nature, the Kop van Schouwen is a very popular area for hikers. Just as for cyclists, there is a variety of routes and paths. Thanks to the wonderful weather in this region, the sun shines considerably more here than in the rest of the country, you can go for a relaxing or sporty walk all year round.
Many paths take you through dunes and forests and when you are a member of natural monuments, the protected nature areas open up and you come to areas where weather, wind and inhabitants such as reen, rabbits and countless bird species have free rein. Many visitors travel for hours on a beach walk. To make Renesse. The expanse attracts enormously and the many dune transitions give access to the nature reserves behind or simply for a much needed break in a catering establishment. The seal population has been growing for several years and these animals regularly show themselves on the coastline at low tide or on one of the many sandbanks that can be seen from the beach. About 5 kilometers from Renesse is a recently built nature reserve, the Plan Tureluur. No less than 73 hectares of nature reserve has been created as a foraging area for migratory birds.
You can of course go on your own initiative, but there are also plenty of opportunities throughout the year to go out into nature on foot. You can get guidance from a guide from, for example, Staatsbosbeheer or the IVN. Various walking routes have been described, such as the routes “Ten Noorden Van Renesse” and “Ten Zuiden Van Renesse”. The local tourist offices can provide you with all information. The ANWB also offers various options.
