Imposing monuments, cosy little squares, attractive shopping streets, sandy beaches and a well-designed seaside boulevard: that’s Nieuwpoort in a nutshell. Over its long history, it suffered from many sieges, but never lost its spirit. After the First World War, it rose from its ashes more charming than ever before. The newly built Westfront Visitors’ Centre tells you the city’s remarkable story.
Over the last decades, the increasing popularity of watersports made Nieuwpoort into one of the largest yacht harbours in Northern Europe and a real Mecca for water sports enthusiasts. The 18 different gardens, each with its own charm, are also worth your visit.
