Sunny Days at the North Coast

When you heard about Belgium, you probably think about Brussels, Bruges, french fries, beers and waffles. But Belgium is not just that. If you have the chance in the future to spend a few days or more in this small and beautiful country, be sure to pass by the north coast.

What is the best about Belgium, it is that it is so small that you can easily visit all the most beautiful places in a few days. Sure, the weather is not as hot as it is in the south of Europe, the water is not as blue as the Mediterranean Sea and  you will not find palm trees, but it doesn’t matter because the North Sea is beautiful, charming and fun.

Walk along the sea, bicycle ride under the sun through the small and picturesque villages, best seafood tasting, shells hunting, sailboat riding,… and so much more things to do. Let me take you for a little visit…  

All the pictures were taken in Nieuwpoort.

Nieuwpoort is well known for the sea food. Please don’t leave without at least trying mussels in one of the many restaurants along the dike. If the wind is not too strong  you will even be able to eat outsides just in front of the beach and the sea. A real delight !

    I must confess that all I knew about Belgium was Brussels & Bruges, so thanks for the info. Btw, “Sunny Days” is a David Coverdale song!

    I love places like Belgium because you can easily get around! There are so many sights to see, the place is just majestic and stunning! I wouldn’t mind spending a day just sitting by the beach and eating some ice cream or gelato.
