Belgian Coast



The coastal area between Knokke and Nieuwpoort is the summer destination for many Belgians. There are several seaside towns that can be reached fairly easily by train from Brussels, offering wide sandy beaches, painted bathing huts, seaside attractions and many restaurants.

Knokke offers upmarket shops, hotels and restaurants, and Blankenberge appeals more to those who enjoy amusement arcades. Le Coq/De Haan is one of the nicest seaside towns in the country, with fewer holiday-home apartment blocks along the coastline. There is a tram that runs all the way along the coast (behind the sand dunes), connecting the towns.
