Top Snorkeling and Scuba Diving in Schouwen-Duiveland
From the parking you can go straight into the water. It is a bit of a climb on the slippery rocks, but is not hard. The sandy bottom is covered with rocks, which makes the life abundant and diverse. The slope goes down rather quick to about 30 meters. Lots of different nudibraches, anemones, big lobsters, a lot of crabs. Visibility is not always good, but it is a nice dive site. Be aware of the currents, you can only dive on the change of tides!!! Plompetoren is on the Plompetorenweg along the Oosterschelde, between Schelphoek and Burghsluis. Drive along the mainroad N59 coming from Zierikzee in the direction of Middelburg. Follow directions Burghsluis and from Burghsluis drive east, the water on your right-hand side. You will see the big tower which is called Plompetoren and the parking here. From the parking, you can go straight into the water.
Also one of the most visited dive sites of the Grevelingenmeer. Parking for apprx. 25 cars, stairs to cross the dyke. Depth range from 2 to 30 meters, most beautiful depth between 3 and 15 meters.

Kerkweg Den Osse
Kerkweg Den Osse is one of the most famous (and most visited) dive sites in the Grevelingenmeer, a huge saltwater lake in Zeeland. Big parking, two mobile toilets, snack bar available. Stairs to cross the dyke and o help you into the water. Depth range from 2 meters to 30 meters. Most beautiful depth range is 5 to 15 meters. Artificial reef of reef balls placed in 2001, is now beautifully overgrown with anemones and houses a lot of lobsters, crabs and fishes.
A great site to dive, but can be very busy at times. In 2008 this site has been renewed as a result of Shore improvements. It now has a stair leading into the water so getting in or out is easier instead of climbing over rocks
