Coastal Walking Route

The Coastal Walking Route is a network of paved and unpaved hiking trails between De Panne and Knokke-Heist. Thanks to this route, you can plan your own hiking route using signposted junctions. You can find all these points on a convenient overview map. It couldn't be easier!

With the Coastal Walking Route, you can enjoy dunes and polders, mudflats and salt marshes, sea and beach. But it's not just about nature: the route also offers a dive into our rich maritime past, our war history, or the Belle Époque era. And with the junctions, you can walk à la carte along the coast, making a different choice each time.

To plan your itinerary, you only need the map brochure. You can purchase it at one of our information offices. Of course, you can also order it online (in Dutch or French).


With the Coastal Walking Route app, you can create your ideal coastal walk yourself.
You decide where you walk, how long you walk, and that along the most attractive and safe paths on our coast. Based on the ladder of the Coastal Walking Route, you can create your own route and see the number of kilometers and time appear on the screen.

This app is specially designed for families with children. Along the way, children can perform various exciting tasks and collect points. You can even share your achievements with friends via Facebook and Twitter. The Coastal Walking Route app is the ideal way to explore the coast together with your children.

For parents, the app includes a special SOS button: toilets, parking lots, tram stops, first aid posts, etc., are displayed on the screen and provide the necessary information.
