Dernière mise à jour : il y a un jour

In view of the news of the last few months, you may think that dream vacations with bare feet in the white sand, under a shining sun are no longer relevant? Don't be so sure, Belgium is full of beaches on the North Sea which, as you will see, have (almost) nothing to envy to the most beautiful seaside resorts of the world!

Even if some stereotypes may still make you doubt it, the beauty of the Belgian coastline is worth the detour. That's why we have selected 5 seaside resorts where you can enjoy your vacation with your feet in the water! Between a walk on the beach, a bike ride or kitesurfing on the waves, the charm of the Belgian coast is sure to seduce you.

The most family-friendly: Ostend

In Flanders, 30 minutes by train from Brussels, lies one of the most famous seaside resorts in the country: Ostend. This resort is an ideal destination for a family weekend, thanks to the many activities that are offered. Enjoying the fresh air during a sea excursion, taking a long walk on the beach or visiting museums such as the Mercator, a three-masted ship transformed into an aquatic museum, are all activities that will allow you to fully enjoy your stay.

Discover Ostend and its urban art on board a rosalie. You will be able to admire the many facades decorated with gigantic frescos of the art festival The Crystal Ship, a colorful show!

The harbor area is also a must-see when visiting Blankenberge! After a look at the boats, take a walk along the pier for some fresh air.
