In the 19th century, it became one of the first sea-side resorts visited by tourists. There are still some “belle époque” houses left. Another nice building is the “Paravang”. It is a elegant wind-screen build in 1908, with benches alongside a park, and with a nice vue on the yacht-harbor. Blankenberge also has a lighthouse, with a little marine museum inside. There is the “Pier” : a walking bridge for tourists that streches some 300 m into the sea. It was build in 1931-1933 in art-deco style. In Blankenberge, there are a lot of tourist facilities : swimming pools, sauna, tennis, mini golf, casino,… and of course the beach, and sand dunes were you can make beautiful walks. Our appartement is situated in front of “Sealife”. Sealife is a animal park with see animals where you can see seahorses, sharks, pinguins, turtles, etc… It also has a seal rescue center. Ideal for children. Blankenberge is the ideal “base camp” to visit the ancient Flamish cities like Bruges and Gent.
