This stage of the journey takes you through very diverse sceneries. From De Panne to Koksijde, you will pass the visitor centres Duinpanne en Doornpanne, cycle through dunes, enjoy magnificent sea views and beautiful sandy beaches. In Nieuwpoort, you can take the ferry, or do a little detour via the vibrant harbour and imposant King Albert Monument (both options are signposted). From Middelkerke to Ostende, you will cycle next to beautiful sandy beaches with breathtaking sea views, passing the Beaufort sculpture park of contemporary art. Don’t forget to climb the Warandetoren with its spectacular 360° view on dunes, polders, beach and sea. In Ostende, enjoy the beautiful architecture of the Venetiaanse Gaanderijen and Kursaal, or visit the James Ensor House. The authentic home of this surrealist artist has been given a modern twist thanks to a brand new interactive experience centre. Lovers of culture and coastal gastronomy can indulge in their passion in the bustling coastal towns and vibrant seaside resorts.
