Strand De Westhoek

Strand De Westhoek is the last Belgian beach to visit before crossing the French border. It is only 1 kilometer from the French border. To visit this beach you have to drive to the nearest tourist center De Panne. If most Belgian beaches are family friendly, this one is certainly not, as it does not offer such a high standard of beach services like the others do. It is best suited for the explorer type of user, who is not too demanding and is satisfied with a mere beach. Sand is also present on the beach, but what gives the beach a unique character, is a concrete barrier that you can also walk on, which serves as a breakwater to protect the land from the sea. Access to the beach is easy, you can park by the road, just 50 meters from the beach. There are no restaurants or beach infrastructure on the beach, except for a couple of benches and trash cans. But the beach is open to dogs. A variety of accommodations are also available near the beach, but not directly on the beach. The length of the beach is several kilometers, and the width depends very much on the tide. In the event of high tide, the water can extend all the way to the breakwater barrier, and in the case of low tide it can be pulled far away. Entering the water can be possible immediately in the case of high tide, and in the case of low tide, when the water recedes and the beach is more flat, you will only be able to start swimming after about 75 m of walking in the water.
