In Oostduinkerke, 4 kilometers from Koksijde-bad in the direction of Ostend, the fisherfolklore is still alive. It's the only place where you can see the schrimpfischers on horseback.
A nice bar, where you can eat and drink and enjoy the music of the years 60 - 70 - 80's
Dress Code: no special dresses

On the end of the years 1800, the fischermen build little houses, where they stay when they were on land.
Most of the fischermen went fishing by Norway en Iceland on codfish.
