Holiday homes West Flanders, for a seaside holiday
On the Belgian coast you will find broad beaches, boulevards, festivals, restaurants and casinos and 13 resorts, from chic Knokke-Heist and nostalgic De Haan, to lively Blankenberghe. There are various attractions for the children, such as Plopsaland and Boudewijnpark. And when the weather is bad you can always visit a museum, such as the Abbey museum, in Ten Duinen. A fun way to discover the Belgian coast is to cycle (part of) the Coastal cycling route. This route runs from De Panne to Knokke-Heist and is 86 km long. Or you take the Coast Tram. This stops in all resorts between De Panne and Knokke-Heist. Remember to visit the unique nature reserve Het Zwin.
