In summer, Blankenberge is a city that never sleeps, a piece of a Spanish 'Costa' in Belgium.
- Luckily this effervescent place also has ample possibilities for those who want peace and quiet.
- Our favourite spot is certainly the harbour, where fishing boats and yachts come and go and where the shrimp catches are brought ashore. Sitting on the benches beside the water you will never tire of looking at the vast water basin.
Beach and promenade in Blankenberge this summer
The general safety measures apply at all times.
- What is absolutely worth knowing?
In Blankenberge there is no need to book your spot on the beach. Bubbles will be accommodated on the beach berm and each person will be allocated an area of 6m². The foreshore is reserved for physical exercise. On the beach berm, beach windbreaks (installed by the City) will mark the distances between bubbles. At that, you can book a lounger via the participating beach bars until 22:00 the day before. Cyclists are welcome on the promenade, go-carts are not.
- We’ll make sure that you’ll have a brilliant, carefree holiday!
The beach has been subdivided into zones and, per zone, beach coaches are on duty to steer everything in the right direction and to answer any questions. In addition, the level of activity on both beach and promenade will be monitored. Lastly, Blankenberge has installed information boards at the railway station displaying the level of activity in the various beach zones.

The pier is a unique construction consisting of a 350-metre-long pedestrian bridge leading to the well-known circular building where you can have a drink in the coffee house or visit the exhibition centre.
The Wester- en Oosterstaketsel (palisades) are excellent spots to enjoy a soothing sea breeze and a magnificent view.
If you are looking for surprising fauna and flora, you've come to the right place in De Fonteintjes (The Fountains). This unique nature and walking area stretches from Blankenberge to Zeebrugge.
The 'Paravang'is a windshield dating from the Belle Epoque period, with an eastern touch. This is a very pleasant spot to catch the sun, out of the wind, while reading a book or watching the world go by.
Belle Epoque Centre
The Belle Époque Centre offers you a glimpse of the glory of the Belle Époque era from around 1870 to 1914, when Europe's middle class prospered, tourism increasingly gained more importance and Blankenberge was on its way to become a major seaside resort with grand construction projects.
