Bench 15 Promenade

This bench is located at the ‘jiste strange’ (first beach) of Breskens. In days gone by it was a royal place to stay, with a lifeguard, a first aid post and wooden decking with a shower to rinse off the salt water. When a green flag flew, you knew the sea was clear and you could go for a swim. Nowadays the beach gets a sand replenishment every so often because the sea and storms regularly take the sand away. Tip: Roll up your trouser legs, put your feet in the water of the Westerschelde and dry off on this beautiful beach.
