Plompetoren, Koudekerke

The Plompetoren dive site is named after the remaining tower of the village of Koudekerke, which disappeared into the sea. This is not a difficult dive site when it comes to navigation, the side is straight and the depth lines run up to 30 meters approximately parallel to the shore.

However, it can flow strongly here and therefore it is often poor visibility. Depth and current make it advisable not to come here as an inexperienced diver. Preference for high tide
