The Plompe Tower is the church tower (and only remnant) of Koudekerke. A former village on Schouwen-Duiveland that was once swallowed by the waves. This is good place to enjoy the view on the Oosterschelde and Schouwen-Duiveland. Many birds are attracted by the so calles 'inlages', low-lying, moist grasslands that are partly submerged. In spring you see Common Redshank, Black-tailed Godwit, Avocet and Black-headed Gull. In the winter months, thousands of Barnacle Goose and Brent Goose forage on the brackish grassland.
Due to its location, traveling there by car is the best option.
