This city (evidently) offers nature lovers a plethora of choices on and around the water. The sea and the beach are never far away. Do visit the Robert Orlent promenade where you can walk and cycle along the shores of the IJzermonding. In the similarly named nature reservoir you can go bird spotting and watch seals.
If you prefer some culture and history, you will appreciate a visit to the old town with its Medieval architecture: check out the ‘Duvetorre’ (Devils Tower), the ‘Stadshalle’ (Cityhall), and the ‘Vissersmonument’ (Fishers’ Monument) at the Westfront. In Nieuwpoort and among its surroundings you can find a wealth of traces to its war-time past, including the lock-complex ‘De Ganzenpoot’, the Belgian Military cemetery in Ramskappelle, the English Military cemetery in Sint-Joris and the visitors centre Westfront.
The Albert-I-laan or the Lobardsijdestraat in Nieuwpoort-Bad are the perfect places for shopaholics to wander and perhaps even find themselves a fine piece of clothing! These streets easily rival the famous shopping areas of bigger international cities. Should you instead prefer a quieter experience, the streets in the centre of Nieuwpoort-city won’t disappoint.
