  • Sea Life Center

    A very nice place to visit. You may see many fishes and other sea animals. I even could caress a shark. Nice. And the animals are kept good and correct, they have even a seal clinic and an elevation of hyppocampuses.Great place to spend an afternoon. (Even if it cannot be compared with the two oceans center in Cape Town...)

  • SeaLife Centre

    Much like the other SeaLife centres in Britain, the Netherlands etc. I haven't got a photo from it, but trust me, it's worth a visit, especially if you've got children (as there is also a nice playground). There are aquariums and an outdoor bit with otters and seals and you can see the seals being fed. There is also a seal sanctuary. My favourites...

  • The Beach, the beach, the beach

    This is bucket and spade country. The town has all the charm of a Mancunian housing estate but the gently sloping beach is a haven for families. The sand dunes are great as you can set up base camp and keep an eye on the kids for all of the half mile or so to where the waters of the North sea lap onto the beach. As it is so gently sloping it is...

  • Too many people

    Sometimes in the summer, if the temperature rise to more than 25 degrees celcius, expect the crowd! it is advisable as early as possible to take advance hotel booking, otherwise you won't find anything. restaurants along seaside are mostly full during meal time, better wait a bit late.

Blankenberge What to Pack

  • bonio's Profile Photo

    by bonio Updated Oct 6, 2008

    Miscellaneous: As the title suggests, a rundown on most of the beers brewed in Belgium, and some good places to try them. A great help when confronted by a beer menu with up to 300 different beers! It's by Tim Webb and published by CAMRA in the UK.
    Led us to Cafe Luxembourg, on Zeedijk, comfortable with a good choice of beers, and then Den Brasseur on Leopoldstraat with an equally impressive beer menu and tasty snacks.

    The name comes from the French word "paravent" which means windscreen. This elegant structure with an oriental look dates back to the Belle-Epoque-era.
