Nieuwpoort and Ostend are only a stone’s throw away and perfect for enjoying a spot of culture or a shopping spree. Bruges or Ypres are less than half an hour’s drive away. For families with children, Plopsaland is only a 20-minute drive away.


Westfront is a brand new interactive centre in Nieuwpoort with as main theme the flooding of the IJzer plains during WW1. The nearby sluice complex, the Ganzenpoot, played a crucial role during the First World War. The visitor centre starts with the invasion of the German troops in August 1914 and ends with the reconstruction of the coastal town of Nieuwpoort.

VVW Westende is hereby able to offer a wide range of sports and camping facilities in a unique location with specific equipment for each activity. With the arrival of the new ‘De Kwinte’ in Westende, the club has become much more than just a surfing club and is now a comprehensive watersports centre! In its comfortable setting with a magnificent view over the sports beach, it is the new place to be on the coast for sports, fun and partying.

Cycling & walking

The many cycling and footpaths along the coastal routes offer you a varied and changing view over the beautiful polder areas, the peaceful country lanes and the characteristic and charming villages.

Het museum 'Kusthistories' is een echte aanrader. Je stapt er in de geschiedenis van het kusttoerisme aan de Belgische kust. Vandaag is vakantie aan de kust heel gewoon. Ooit was het anders. Oude badmode, souvenirs, een oude tram, 'billenkarren', unieke filmpjes, mooie decors, en nog veel meer.
