It's a beach life!The maritime focus of this sailing town is evident with its yacht harbor and fishing port but the main attraction for tourists is still the magnificent beach. The golden sands are perfect for sunbathing and building sandcastles and inhaling the salty North Sea air. There are plenty of opportunities to burn off some energy with kite flying on the beach or adrenalin filled windsurfing.
Soak up the historyBook a boutique style B&B at Bed and Breakfast Nieuwpoort in the Nieuwpoort old town with its stylish townhouses and historic centre. The marktplein with its 11th century gothic Belfry was bombarded during WW1. It was carefully restored in the 1920s and is now a UNESCO world heritage site. If you're tired of sunning yourself at the beach take the tram here to sip a refreshing drink at one of the cozy bars or restaurants.
RamskapelleNieuwpoort played a key role during WW1. Local partisans held off the German advance by opening the sluice gates and flooding the surrounding fields. Without their bravery and determination perhaps the war would have been lost. From your Bed and Breakfast Nieuwpoort you can cycle along the old railway line, Frontzate, and visit the military cemeteries and old defense station for a truly humbling emotional experience.
Drink like a fish!When you come to a Bed and Breakfast Nieuwpoort you simply must sample the seafood and beer for which Belgium is famous. Try a traditional Tomaat Garnaal, a tomato filled with Belgian grey shrimp. You couldn't get any closer to the source!
