The coast

De Haan - Wenduine

These two small seaside resorts are situated at 20 minutes from B&B Bonifacius Bruges. Wenduine has a family character. In De Haan the influence of the Belle Époque is still very much alive. By the end of the 19th century, the first tourists arrived and lots of beautiful hotels and mansions were built in ‘cottage’ style. Beautiful cycling and walking paths through dunes and woods connect the two seaside resorts. You can also take the tram from De Haan to Ostend or Knokke.
