Westende Vacation Packages
Travel along the Belgian North Sea coast to find Westende, one of 13 coastal resorts of the West Flanders province. Relax on Westende's wide sandy beach and go for leisurely strolls on the promenade.
Picturesque Westende is a popular summer playground that was once the western point of the former island of Testerep, which is now connected to the mainland. Its big draw is Westende Beach.
Sunbathe, swim and play games on the sand. Amble along the promenade, stopping at a bar or restaurant for a meal or snack with wonderful views of the North Sea.
In addition to impromptu games of soccer or volleyball on the sands, you can demonstrate your sporting prowess in other ways. Play the holes of the scenic Westgolf then enjoy a meal on the patio of its restaurant, which overlooks the woods, greens and course water features.
For an interesting diversion, tour the Museum Villa Les Zéphyrs'. This is a villa from the interwar period that shows how a family from the 1930s spent its vacation on the Belgian coast.
Take advantage of the Coastal Tram service, which makes numerous stops along the coast. Visit other resorts such as Oostduinkerke for its nature reserves and Ostend for its war heritage. Drive approximately 28 miles (45 kilometers) east of Westende for a fascinating daytrip to the city of Bruges, the capital of West Flanders. Take romantic walks along the canals and be enchanted by the city’s medieval architecture.
Westende has mild summers with a refreshing breeze that comes off the sea. Winters are cold, but rarely freezing.
Reach the resort by flying into Ostend-Bruges International Airport and then drive southwest for about 15 minutes. Westende is a relaxing coastal destination, close to several other resorts as well as cities filled with fascinating historical sites.
