Nature reserve 'De Ijzermonding'

Park / Garden
Nieuwpoort

A nature reserve with an extraordinary profusion of fauna and flora that cannot be found anywhere else in Belgium, except for the Zwin. The frest water from the IJzer, th eonly river in Belgium flowing direct into the North Sea, i smixed up with the salty seawater. Because for the tidal movement a unique area of saltings and mud flats was built, an ideal breeding ground for a rich variety of soil animals such as worms, snails, algae, shells and crustaceans. The continuous interaction between the salt and fresh water in the IJzer estuary also creates a special biotope characterized by salt loving plants such as salicornia, sea plantain and perennial goosefoot.
Only guided visits are possible.
