BELGIAN COAST BRUGES & ANTWERP

Resort - Blankenberge

Overview

A busy coastal resort, with a bustling marina, weekly market and traditional pier, Blankenberge was popularised in the Belle Époque, and remains a favourite among Belgian, British and European holidaymakers. The long flat promenade leads from the marina at the southern end to extensive dunes at the northern end of town. Along the way many boutiques and cafés vie for the visitor’s attention. The old town is pedestrianised, with shops for all tastes and a variety of interesting architecture. Local attractions include a sea life centre, reptile zoo and the fascinating Belle Époque museum.
