Middelkerke - Westende

Halfway along the coastline you will find Middelkerke, a family orientated resort with lots of leisure facilities.

  • On the long, broad promenade, the Casino, the cultural centre of the resort, immediately catches the eye.
  • The promenade leads to the borough of Westende, which is divided into Westende-bad (beach) and Westende-dorp (village). 
  • Once upon a time this was a prestigious resort, but a great deal of the beautiful 'Belle Epoque' houses from that time were lost in the two world wars.
  • Middelkerke is an excellent starting point for bicycle rides and walks through the polder countryside.
