The dunes of Saint Laurent

The Sint-Laureinsduinen are a little more than 45 hectares and are situated between the centre of Westende-Bad and the military domain of Kwartier Lombardsijde. Many will remember the dunes from the former campsites Cosmos and Crystal Palace, two sub-areas that were cleared and remediated in 2005. Since the refurbishment, nature has had free rein again and you can enjoy it to the full from the newly laid out footpaths.

The IJzermonding nature reserve

Near Nieuwpoort, the IJzer flows directly into the sea. Where salt and fresh water meet, a special biotope developed with mud flats, salt marshes, dunes, beach and polders. Thanks to an extensive network of cycling and hiking trails, you can start from Westende and enjoy the natural beauty of the IJzer estuary. Handy information panels tell you all about this wonderful nature reserve along the way. On certain days of the week you can take the ferry directly to Nieuwpoort Bad.
