67 kilometres of picturesque sandy beaches stretch from the French to the Dutch border. The Flemish North Sea coast is a delight. It is lined with 13 seaside resorts, each with its own distinct character and identity. De Panne’s wide beaches, perfect for a stroll; Koksijde’s traditional fishing community; De Haan’s Belle Époque grandeur... And then there is the Zwin nature reserve, with 159 hectares of flora, fauna and walks to enjoy. Life along the North Sea is an endless journey of discovery. Venture on foot, or take a ride on the longest tram line in the world. The coastal tram will take you to all the North Sea coast’s loveliest offerings.
