Zeebrugge is undoubtedly a port village; the entirety of the tourism industry evolves around the ferry terminal, the harbour swarmed with passengers heading towards the quaint and charming streets, or scurrying to the nearby train station. It’s the transport links which elevate Zeebrugge into a resort a cut above your typical seaside town; the international port has demanded a few attractions to accompany the impressive infrastructure, most notably the incredibly wide beach that stretches along the coastline.

The selection of eateries is enough to satisfy most visitors, but for the adventurous types, you can hire a motorboat to ride the waves along the waterfront.
