With its direct location on the Veerse Meer, the Paardekreek is a water sports paradise where you can enjoy sailing, surfing, wakeboarding or dining. You can rent a sloop to explore the islands and beaches of the Veerse Meer, and the beach is only a 10-minute drive away. From the park you can explore the area on foot or by bike, you can make a beautiful trip along the Veerse Meer or even the Oosterschelde and cross the water on one of the ferries. Because of its central location in Zeeland, historic cities such as Veere, Middelburg, Goes and Zierikzee are close by. The coast of Zeeland with the North Sea beach is only 10 minutes away by car.
Kortgene is a lively, cosy and touristic village at the Veerse Meer. As a visitor and guest of the Paardekreek you will experience the real holiday feeling when you wake up directly at the waterfront and walk to the village. In the heart of Kortgene you will find several shops, a supermarket, a traditional butcher, a baker and much more! Every Saturday there is a small market on the square in front of the church where you can buy fresh fish, cheese, vegetables and fruit. The centre of Kortgene can be reached on foot from the Paardekreek.
