Oostduinkerke

Oostduinkerke is a popular seaside resort in the Belgian province of West Flanders. The name Oostduinkerke can be translated as 'Eastern Church of the Dunes'. Oostduinkerke is part of Koksijde, which also includes St-Idesbald and Wulpen.

Oostduinkerke lies amidst a dune area (approximately 2.4 km²), which is now a protected nature reserve.

To go for walks in the nature reserves (7 km²) or on the beach (8 km) or on the promenade (3.6 km) is a refreshing experience. The sandy beach stretches from 250 to 700 m at ebb-tide and extends over 30 km, via De Panne to the beach of Dunkirk (France), which explains why Oostduinkerke is popular with sand yachters and parakarters.

Oostduinkerke is known for its shrimpers on horseback, a considerable tourist attraction. It is the only place in the world where you can see such shrimpers. Fishery folklore is still very much alive.
