Wide beaches, high dunes

After their successful first book (about the coasts of Europe), Marijke and Martin Kers decided to write a new book; a photo report. This second book gives a striking depiction of the Dutch and Belgian coasts. A long coastline with sandy beaches and high dunes, which protect the hinterlands from the sea.

More than 500 km of varied coast

The Dutch coast is long: 523 kilometers. 353 kilometers lie along the North Sea. The provinces of North and South Holland have many seaside resorts, all with a unique atmosphere. In the south, the landscape becomes more varied. Rotterdam (as major international port), the deltas of the Rhine, Meuse, and Scheldt, and the famous delta plan determine the appearance of this coastline. The coastline of Zeeland is rugged, and therefore very special. Kers focused on all aspects of a coast; the sea, dykes, polders, ships, industry, nature, plants, birds, ground, lighthouses, seawalls, dunes, villages, bathers, and tourists

Beligum included

Kers also included the Belgian coastline as well. After Zeeland, he depicts the Zwim. The Zwim forms the border between the Netherlands and Belgium. Along the 67 kilometer Belgian coast lies a highly urbanized coastline, including sandy beaches and the famous seaside resorts: Knokke and Oostende.

Hardcover and 3 languages

’The Dutch Coast' by Martin Kers provides a beautiful overview of the Dutch and Belgian coastline. A great book to bring along on your travels or as a reference book. The coast is mainly captured in pictures. Enhanced with text here and there. The Dutch captions have also been translated into English and German. This makes the book accessible to an international audience.

The coast of the Netherlands and Belgium possesses quite a different kind of beauty than the coast of Norway for instance. You be the judge!
