Bredene is home to recreation park Grasduinen where you can take part in numerous activities or simply enjoy the regional fauna and flora.
In 1996, the Flemish Region bought 13 ha of dune pasture and arable land from holiday resort Blutsyde with the idea of turning it into a nature reserve. So far, the restoration of the original landscape has produced at least one remarkable result: the massive return of Dwarf Montia, a rare plant species that thrives on bare, wet and lime-deficient soil.

Lighthouse 'De Lange Nelle'
This lighthouse, in common parlance known as ‘lange Nelle’ is the fourth lighthouse in Ostend’s history and the third one to grace this very spot. The lighthouse stands 65 m tall and has been guiding fishermen safely into port since 1949
