Bench 13 Westhavendam

From the dike you have a formidable view, because from here you can see the estuary of the Western Scheldt and the coastline of Walcheren, ‘the other side’. On a clear day you can see the lighthouse of Westkapelle, a little to the right is Zoutelande and even further to the right are the Sardijntoren, the watchtower of the Arsenal and the port of Vlissingen. This is where the ‘kaoje’, dike, water and harbour come together. Sailors returning from a trip see rounding this dike as coming home. Tip: no clear weather today? Then definitely come back!
