A weekend at the seaside in Domburg, Holland

End of June my wife and me celebrated our wedding anniversary. At this occasion we went for a weekend to the seaside together with our two daughters. We rented a caravan in Domburg a cosy small town on the peninsula Walcheren at the Norh Sea in Holland just across the Belgian border.

This area is known by hobby bikers as one of the most biking friendly areas with biking paths along the seaside and inland. Biking isn’t difficult there since everything is flat, no hills to climb but somtimes there can be some hard wind.

During our visit there was a yearly tournament horseback ring riding. A rider on a horse has to catch a ring with a lance. They start with a large ring and this becomes smaller and smaller. The horses are beautifully decorated.


There was also a traditional market. People dressed in traditional clothes made candies on a traditional way, did the laundering the old fashioned way and gave demonstrations in weaving baskets.
In the center of Domburg there are also much cosy pubs with sunny terraces where you can drink and eat.

Domburg has a large beach with colourful beach cabins. The wooden breakwaters are covered with seaweed.

When you want to drink or eat something you can sit on the large terrace of a Beach Hut. You can find these Huts all along the coast of the Netherlands. The terraces are well protected from the wind and you can enjoy the beautiful sunset with a delicious sangria or beer.
