Oostkapelle is one of the larger villages in the municipality of Veere and was named after a chapel that is alleged to have stood here at some point in time. Oostkapelle borders onto two magnificent areas of natural beauty between Domburg and Vrouwenpolder: Manteling (740 hectares), a wide strip of land with dunes and forest and the Oranjezon dune area (400 hectares). There are also some country estates and the imposing Westhove Castle. The former orangery, Terra Maris, a museum for nature and landscape, is only 750 metres from the beach and has a landscaped garden of 2.5 hectare. There is also a museum café and a museum shop.
Oostkapelle is an ideal family coastal resort. Clean beaches, playground equipment and convenient beach decking across the entire width. The lifeguards are present from May to September, operating from their first aid unit. Your stomachs are also catered to by a bakery / tearoom, a supermarket, a butcher, beach pavilions and restaurants.
