Westende is partly situated in the dunes and polders. The beaches are wide, nine kilometres long and are connected by a boulevard. At some places the beach is 500 meter wide, which is one of the things which makes Westende the perfect holiday destination for ones that are looking for nature, sea, architecture and local gastronomy.
Furthermore there are plenty of activities in July and August, which are under organised by enthusiastic sport instructors. The ones that don’t want to lay on the beach all day long can play beach volleyball, fitness, beach football and many other games. Most of these activities are for free!
A sunbath or a walk along the beach, playing fun or water sports. The very well maintained, white beaches of Westende will offer you peace and quietness. The beaches, with showers to rinse of the salt seawater, will be cleaned everyday. Besides the rescue brigade will guard the beaches and warns when there is a dangerous current or wind; a pleasant and safe feeling.
On the beaches and in the surf you can practice a variety of spectacular recreation forms. Other surf disciplines are mobile short boards, and the calmer long boards, body boards, bodysurf with a small board in the hand, kneeboards on your knees and the skim boards on the thin water film that stays behind after every wave. On the wide beaches of the North seacoast you can drive a sail wagon or do some beach surfing.
During July and August you can swim under supervision of safeguards and first-aid professionals. The beach is also provided with showers. If you are interested in a beach holiday in Belgium, Westende definitely is a good destination!
