I know it's possible to travel this route by train (NS website), and also by bus (with 3 buses in from Rome to Rio).

But I was wondering that there maybe other transports, like ferries or other buses that don't have schedules online or that run only in summer time.

Which options are there to get from Antwerp to Middelburg avoiding train?

My goal is to make the travel more scenic, avoiding the train, which I will have to use later.

    I see no ferries, which isn't very surprising; the peninsula seems well connected by bridges. Have you considered renting a car or using a bicycle? Jul 15, 2015 at 21:55

    There's an uncontrolled airfield in Middelburg with a grass runway that looks to be long enough for a two seater. There's an outdoors cafe virtually on the runway. Sounds like a natural!

There is a ferry between Breskens and Vlissingen, running hourly at least and more in summer, during the school run and more.

You can only use that ferry by bicycle or as foot passenger, cars and buses have to use a tunnel farther away, there is also bike transport through the tunnel as cyclists are not allowed to ride it.

Here is a map of the area with the ferry and the tunnel on it.

So find yourself transport from Antwerp to Breskens, join the ferry across and take the train or an other bus for the last stretch.

As alternative, go Dutch, get a bike somehow and cycle the whole distance.

In Belgium you can use 'de lijn' for buses and in the Netherlands OV9292 for all public transport, so uncheck the trains in '+ more options'. Check routes for a series of border towns, local buses do not cross borders as a rule, and long distance buses do not run in this area.
I have done that search before but so long ago that I will not find the (Yahoo!Answers) information anymore.
