The Kabbelaarsbank is located halfway between the Brouwersdam, between Goeree-Overflakkee and Schouwen Duiveland. This sandbar was traditionally a shoal in Brouwershavense Gat, which fell dry at low tide. When the Brouwersdam was built in 1971, part of the Kabbelaarsbank was raised and used as a working island. After the closure of the Grevelingen of the North Sea, as a result of which there was no longer any ebb and flow, the lower part of the sandbar also emerged well. In order to retain the sand, dust screens were installed so that dunes were created. Sowing grass prevented further spraying. then a forest was planted in 1974. In this way a varied nature area has been created over the years. At the end of the 1980s, 2 hiking routes were laid out through the nature reserve. These routes go through the woods, through the dunes, over flower meadows and along creeks. Here and there are interesting glimpses of the Grevelingen. In addition, you will come across a bird watch screen on both walks so that you can also see bird life on the water.
