Belgian Coast Greeters

Would you like to discover the hidden pearls and nice addresses of the Belgian coast? Then you should definitely book a tour with the Belgian Coast Greeters! The Belgian Coast Greeters are locals who help you discover the best of the coast in a unique way. And all this for free!

A Greeter is absolutely not a classical guide who gives you guided tours in museums or who takes you to the typical tourist traps. They lead you off the beaten path and let you discover the city through their eyes.

The Belgian Coast Greeters are active in the following coastal towns: Middelkerke-Westende, Blankenberge, De Haan-Wenduine, Ostend, De Panne, Koksijde-Oostduinkerke, Bredene and Knokke-Heist.

Please note: Groups of more than 6 people cannot take part in this tour and should contact the local Tourist Office for a guided tour.

Geocaching in Middelkerke

Geocaching is fun for young and old. You can do it alone or together with the family. Tested and approved! The athletic department is upside down about it. Put on your hiking boots or take your bike and head out! Discover nice places and get to places you wouldn’t really get to otherwise. Fun guaranteed!

Ready made sportive geocaching possibilities in Middelkerke

The sports department has put together a number of walking and/or cycling routes so that you can immediately set off without having to do much preparation yourself.

Along the routes are a number of caches waiting to be found. When you find the caches, please leave them in their exact location with respect for the environment and the person who designed them. Also, don’t forget to complete the logbook each time and log the cache in the app. Each log ensures that the caches remain active. If there are goodies (coins, pictures, trinkets, …) in the caches, then the rule is that if you take something out, you also put something of yourself back.

Don’t forget a pencil and some small goodies.

There, you’re all set! Have fun!

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.

Warande Tower

With its long curved blades, referring to the typical marram grass, the Warande Tower is a striking and slender appearance. From the base (7 meters) you get a nice view of the Warande Dunes, a very valuable nature reserve with special plants and animals. Those who climb to the top (20 metres) can gaze, like a sailor in his crow’s nest, at the horizon: Middelkerke and Westende, the vast polders, many Beaufort works of art and of course the sea…

The steel structure was built on top of the remains of the old water tower. It disappeared but not its original function. A large part of Middelkerke is still supplied with drinking water from here.

The construction of the Warande Tower is an initiative of the municipality of Middelkerke with the support of the Province of West-Flanders, Westtoer and Farys.

Cycle with the whole family along the different locations from the Jommeke album ‘Missie Middelkerke’ and many other comic sights. During the bike ride, go in search of the 11 hidden letters and form the word we are looking for. The letters were painted with white street paint, together with the logo of the municipality, near the signs indicating the stops of the Jommekeroute. Maybe you’ll win one of the comic packs that we raffle off among the participants three times a year. The winners of the comic packages will be notified personally.

The map is for sale in the tourist offices for €1.
