De Haan

Our favorite part of the Belgian coast is De Haan with a playground on the beach and a nice park with playground, mini golf and brasserie, a huge slide and a speelbos in the dune forest (play area in the forest) and a circus themed outdoor playground with tons of things for kids of all ages – also good for rainy days due to the covered terrasses and the many covered activities

De Haan is the perfect spot on the coast for families with a playground on the beach and little carts next to Park La Potinière
