The Flemish Coast is the region bordering the North Sea. It counts 13 seaside resorts in 10 coastal municipalities. A diverse region full of nature, culture, beachlife and numerous recreational possibilities. We lead you through a number of coastal communities.
Its vast nature reserves and outstanding cultural life make Koksijde-Oostduinkerke a top attraction on the Flemish coast.
The image of the resort is undoubtedly that of the horseback shrimp fishermen. Oostduinkerke is the only resort in the world where you can still see this taking place.
Furthermore, Koksijde - Oostduinkerke has all the facilities that a keen sporting tourist could dream of, an exciting calendar of events, pleasant terraces and mouth-watering cuisine.
Even a number of sieges could not break Nieuwpoort's spirit. It rose from its ashes with more charm than ever before.
Above all, it is a safe home port for its fishermen, for thousands of water-sports enthusiasts and for all its guests. Stirring monuments, pleasant squares, impressive shopping-streets and restful parks. The result of a successful town renovation.
When you speak of Nieuwpoort, you also speak of sun, sea and sand.
A definite family seaside resort with a 'sea' of recreational facilities on or along the fine sandy beach and the traffic-free promenade.
You'll also find al kinds of fauna and flora in nature reserve 'De IJzermonding', in the dunes en the hinterland ...
At the only true 'City at the Sea' you will discover over 9 kms of great sandy beaches that invite you to delightful sunbathing and a refreshing dip in the North Sea, alternated with a brisk walk along the promenade.
But this bathing resort has a lot more to offer besides just the sun, the sea and the beach. After a delightful dip in the sea you will be ready to discover a city that offers you a sea of possibilities.You will be able to thoroughly enjoy sports and relaxation, strolling and shopping, music and museums, etc. ...
The proud townsfolk of Zeebrugge often call their town 'the fish capital'.
They are entitled to do so because the fish market of Zeebrugge and its surrounding fishmongers have been an attraction for many years for visitors from all over the country.
Zeebrugge is most famous for its busy sea harbour but the fishmongers stayed where they were, which ensures that the previous pleasantly busy atmosphere is preserved.
A top destination on the Belgian coast: it has a lovely beach, divided into 5 different beaches, a beautiful nature reserve, plenty of shopping facilities, a wide range of cultural activities, a number of architectural gems and an excellent sports infrastructure. Knokke-Heist, by the merging of separate communities shows several different faces.
Knokke-Heist is a seaside resort with a great cultural charisma.
There is not only the casino, but also the Scharpoord cultural centre, which together offer a lively cultural calendar.
Besides this, Knokke-Heist has around fifty art galleries, some of which are of international status.
Then there is the Lippenslaan, the well-known, long and renovated shopping street.
The further you walk from here in the direction of the Zoute, the more the 'look at me' factor arises. Trendy cars, more expensive handbags, more fashionable shops, sophisticated ladies and golfing carts all over the place, create the image of the street.
The Zoute is the most sophisticated resort on the coast, with stately avenues as well as winding lanes in the quiet neighbourhoods, eye-catching villas, a golf course and, of course … the Zwin.
