Yerseke is a relatively small fishing village. But anyone who thinks that there is little to do as a result, is wrong. The port of Yerseke is worth a tour. There are not many places left where you can still experience the traditional oyster pits like this. And how about a culinary arrangement? After the tour you can immediately enjoy all the delicacies from the Oosterschelde. And do you know that a fantastic nature reserve has also been created with the salt water of the Oosterschelde? Book a tour and discover the story of the Yerseke Moer.

Port of Yerseke
Many restaurants in Yerseke are located on and near the Havendijk, right opposite the oyster and lobster park. The activity in the ports, the wet warehouses on the Oosterschelde; everything expresses the strong connection with the sea and the fishing port. Mussel culture started here in the 15th century! As a visitor you are more than welcome here to be informed and of course to taste.
Yerseke also has a completely different side. You will discover them during a tour in the Yerseke Moer. There you go back in time. This nature reserve was created under the influence of the sea and man. In the 15th century, the peat was put away there because of the salt that was hidden in it. This is called nutation. Salt was worth a lot of money at the time. Zeeland even became Europe's salt supplier! Where the peat had been tucked away, the excavated cover layer was sloppily thrown back. This gave the Yerseke Moer its hollow-bulb character. Especially at sunrise this is a fantastic area to discover. It is very rich in birds, including the redshank, avocet, little plover and black-tailed godwit that breed there.
