Knokke-Heist Travel Guide: 60 reviews and 144 photos

K N O K K E - H E I S T is situated at the Belgian East Coast next to the Dutch border. It consists of 3 villages:

Knokke for the jetset,
Duinbergen for the ones who like it quiet and relaxing, and
Heist for active families on a budget.

It's a great place to stay during the summer. There is something for everyone: shopping for the women, beach and night activities for the kids and teenagers, nice cafes for the men and even good nature for the eco-tourists.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Broad white beaches, beautiful nature, many activities, good drinking and eating
  • Cons:Close to Zeebrugge harbour (noise, no pretty skyline)
  • Last visit to Knokke-Heist: Aug 2006

    Hi Helga. Beautiful page. Especially liked your 'Vlindertuin' tip as well as your windsurfing tip. I'm currently considering a trip to the Belgium coast next summer and your page helped me a lot. Thanks!

    Heerlijke pagina Helga en mooie foto's! Sun, Sea & Sand.... deze pagina doet me denken aan en verlangen naar de Nederlandse Noordzee kust. Hopelijk volgend jaar bezoek ik NL weer een keer en dan kun je me zeker een dagje op het strand vinden :-))

    Sort of a "something-for-everyone" type place!

    You're right, I used the special "add some tan" brush on all of my pictures ;-)
