The Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier is an icon of Dutch hydraulic engineering. Downstream of the barrier, large local erosion pits (scour holes) have formed adjacent to the applied bed protection after its construction. It was expected during the design phase that these would develop, but both the magnitude of the scour hole depth as well. The barrier closes under severe storm surge conditions and remains open during normal conditions to preserve the tide-dominated character of the ecosystem. However, this storm surge barrier caused a reduction of tidal volume and tidal current in the Eastern Scheldt. Since , there has been a remarkable reduction of the tidal prism by 30%, of.

Strandpaviljoen De Banjaard is a minute drive away and Eastern Scheldt Storm Surge Barrier is within miles. Middelburg is 10 minutes' drive from the venue. There are several restaurants in the surroundings, including Roompot. This accommodation lies in vicinity of Banjaardstrand. Rotterdam The Hague airport is 41 miles away from this villa. The Eastern Scheldt tidal bay was created by the building of compartment dams isolating the former estuary from freshwater input of the river Scheldt and river Rhine (Figure 1). In addition, a storm surge barrier was built at the entrance of the Eastern Scheldt, reducing tidal amplitude in the bay.

The open barrier, which can be closed in case of a storm.   Between and , the Dutch built Deltawerken (the Delta Works), a sophisticated network of dams, sluices, locks, dikes, and storm surge barriers. One of the most impressive Deltaworks projects is the Eastern Scheldt Storm Surge Barrier, or the Oosterschelde.
