The Sea Life Park isn't in the city center, but you can reach it easily with the little train starting on the promenade (if you're too lazy to walk).
It's a nice place to visit with your family or evenalone. There are all kind of animals living in the sea ... do I have to say that ?
A place somewhat creepy, but very interesting is the Reptilian House. They have a huge collection of living snakes and spiders,
I'm not sure, I dislike the idea of putting an animal in a cage, but it is really interesting to see...

I cannot say that much since it was undergoing refurbishment when we left Belgium and I think and hope that it has now opened in a much nicer state. In our time, it had some arcade games and a bar with a great seaview and equally great Belgian beer :-)))
This is a summer sunset photo in Blankenberge from the shore, we we're here until 10:15 in the evening but this one taken earlier about 9pm.....On the silhoute is my lady cousin and her boyfriend during their 1'st time visit to this place.
I don't know how they exactly call this... but you can play with this to the water.....you have to go inside, balance it, watch your steps and you can walk through the water, the wave will push you back to the shore.
Blankenberge is more popular to tourisic seaside in belgium rather than the city center itself. It is a great experience to come and see this part of belgian coast, the NORTH SEA. A lot of people come in the summer, but usually we came here for a day, if you live from far, then you can stay in some hotels around.
On the Western side of the beach is the yacht-harbor. This large basin used to be the fisher harbor of Blankenberge. During the 20th century, however, the number of fisher boats kept diminishing and after the Second World War, the fisherman`s harbor was changed into a new harbor where about 750 yachts can stay.
The eye-catcher on the Blankenberge sea-side is the `Pier`. This walking bridge stretches 350 m long into the sea and was built in 1894. Demolished in 1914 during the First World War it was rebuilt in 1931-1933. The first pier was made of cast iron. The present pier (from 1931) was built in concrete. At the end of the pier is the `Pavilion` where the `Aquarama` can be visited. The Aquarama is an exhibition about the fauna and flora of the North Sea. I used to work here when i was a student:-))
Large park with tennis courts,mini golf and particularly interested by "snookergolf" like crazy golf but played on a snooker table - with a cue, never seen anything like this before.
A walk along the pier will certainly blow away any cobwebs! enjoyed a brisk walk to the end, didn't have time to visit the atractions there though.
Lovely beach here, though not really warm enough to linger for us, and a walk around the marina admiring the boats, wishing we could afford the ones for sale.
Good way to spend an hour or two.
The beach is a nice, big sandy one, where you can do everything you like doing on a beach. In automn this place is a paradise for surfers.
Also next to the beach Blankenberge offers you amusement.
Kids and adults make a tour with a crazy bycicle on the "lustige velodroom".
Walking along the ' seadike' that's what actually the way belgian people call....where you can see many terrace restaurants, a perfect place to a beach view and have some drinks.
