The proud townsfolk of Zeebrugge often call their town 'the fish capital'.
- They are entitled to do so because the fish market of Zeebrugge and its surrounding fishmongers have been an attraction for many years for visitors from all over the country.
- Zeebrugge is most famous for its busy sea harbour but the fishmongers stayed where they were, which ensures that the previous pleasantly busy atmosphere is preserved.

- What is absolutely worth knowing?
In Zeebrugge there is no need to book your spot on the beach and you can sit anywhere with your bubble. Near the beach huts, the use of beach windbreaks is mandatory. A number of beach zones are strictly reserved for specific users. Both cyclists and go-carts are welcome on the promenade.

To encourage maximum compliance with the hygiene measures, extra sanitary facilities have been provided (on the promenade). In addition, the beach has been subdivided into zones and, per zone, beach coaches will be on duty to steer everything in the right direction and to answer any questions. The level of activity on both beach and promenade will also be monitored. Extra parking facilities will be available on/at the busiest days/times.
