West Flanders

West Flanders is Belgium's most prized province, home to the magical, magnificent medieval city of Bruges, the jewel in the the country's crown. The region's western border runs for 65km along the North Sea, a popular stretch of white sandy beaches and dunes, campgrounds, marinas and seasonal tourist resorts known as the Belgian Coast. Ostend is the area's year-round hub, while Zeebrugge, Belgium's busiest port, is an important shipping and trade gateway into Europe.
