De Panne Travel Guide: 94 reviews and 129 photos

2003 Beaufort is an art project near the Belgian coastline. It can be seen in nine cities along the Belgian coast, from De Panne till Knokke Heist.

The name of this art project, 'Beaufort' refers to the essential power you find at the coast, the power of the wind.

But there is more in this name, there is 'fort' which means strong and 'beau' which means beautiful, so a strong and beautiful art project that you can see in Belgium 'Be' at the sea 'eau' which asks for a big imagination 'ufo'.

Besides this art project, it is nice to visit De Panne. Most of the visitors of De Panne speak French, of course because it is very near the border with France. In De Panne the beach is very wide, so a good location for active sports like hiking, mountain biking and sand yachting.

    It seems to be one of those pages I like.. I'll return... to see more. Paradoxical that we want to share info on things we like (Westhoek Nat Res) but this way, we attract tourists too... that is good but bad as well if too much influx. Yes! paradoxical
