Breezanddijk (West Frisian: Breesândyk) is a small community that lies near the midpoint of the Afsluitdijk, part of the A7 motorway, in the Netherlands. It belongs to the municipality of Súdwest-Fryslân, in Friesland province.

Overview[edit]

The village lies between Den Oever and Kornwerderzand. Until 2011 it was part of the former municipality of Wûnseradiel, merged with other 4 to form the new Súdwest-Fryslân.[1]

There are about 40-50 buildings, most of which are bunkhouses that were built for the workers employed during the construction of the Afsluitdijk.

Today, it has a population of four and its solitary commercial establishment is a Texaco gas station for travelers upon the dike.
