A hearty walk or parading with a view of the sea? Whatever you choose, the Coast really is a walker's paradise. Cyclists, too, can come into their own here. Don't forget to go onto the beach or into the sea to discover how intensely you can enjoy those elements.

Day 1

Feel like sailing on wheels? Hurry along to De Panne beach where you can hire a land yacht. Thrilling!
