The Veerse Meer is an artificial brackish lake in the province of Zeeland. It lies to the south of the island of Noord-Beveland, and to the north of Walcheren and Zuid-Beveland. In the west it is closed off from the North Sea by the Veerse Gatdam since 1961. In the east it is closed off from the Oosterschelde by the Zandkreekdam which was closed on 3 May 1960.
The Veerse Meer is 22 kilometers long. Its width varies from 150 to 1500 meters. The total water surface at NAP is 2030 hectares. There are 13 large and small islands in the lake. Until 1969, the management of the lake was in the hands of the Delta Service.
The water is brackish, with varying salinity. Since May 2004, salt water has been let in from the Oosterschelde, so that the salt content will increase and a tide of about 10 centimeters is created.
The lake is an attractive water sport location. There is a kayak and canoe port at De Piet.
