We regret that in 2020 and 2021 we did not manage to organize our Two-Day Walk.
But in order not to “forget” how it is to walk in and around Blankenberge, we have mapped out some walking tracks that you can do at your own pace at any given moment.
Enjoy the beach, the dunes, the polders, the nature reserves such as “De Utikerkse Polders”, “De Fonteintjes” and “De Duinbossen” in Wenduine/De Haan.
But please do respect the applicable rules and take care of each other and the environment.
Start and finish at tram stop “Duinse polders“.*
Just through the dunes, over the beach and then into the nature reserve “De Fonteintjes”.
We walk into Zeebrugge along the extensive beach and with a view of the breakwater of the harbour.
Then we return along the edge of the “Oudemaarspolder” and through the unique “Zeebos” to end up back at the start.
*note that the tram stop “Duinse Polder” is out of service for the moment due to works. Luckely you can start and stop wherever you want on our tracks, including the tram stop in Zeebrugge called “Strandwijk” as it is also on our tracks.
Start and arrival at the tram stop “Harendijke“.
Walking in the nature reserve “Uitkerkse polders”: a gigantic meadow bird reserve with all kinds of typical and rare birds. Enjoy the various specific viewing huts and rest points along the way.
Look for some shade in the dune forests in Wenduine / De Haan with the typical fauna and flora.
Then up the beach to the “Spioenkop”, the second-highest point on the coast, and then continue along the dune path towards Blankenberge.
