Knokke Beach is a 15-20 minute train ride from Bruges (Brugge) but I bet 99% of international tourists have never made the trip. I’d never have gone there had my girlfriend not wanted to take me away to the Belgian coastline. It’s not like Belgium is known for its beaches, beer and chocolate however…
Knokke is just one of many places along the coast that Belgians go to for their summer holidays. With a promenade running the length of Knokke beach and a casino located right on the promenade, I can see how during the summer months the area would be overrun.
Unfortunately we arrived under cloudy skies and the above photo was the only one I managed to get before the rain set in for the rest of the stay. So you’ll all just have to imagine masses of people catching the last of the days sunshine after a day swimming and eating ice cream on the beach.
Looks beautiful! Hopefully you go back during more sunny conditions 🙂
Thanks Casi, I hope I can get back when the sun is around as well. The wind and rain were not that welcoming for a beach stay.
Great photo! Makes me wish I was there~
Well, the stormy clouds make the shot, so I guess it was worth it! Lovely! I will have to go next time I’m up that way.
Very true Corinne. It’s a nice little place but think the summer period would be the best time to visit
Hey, good work on the photo amigo. Nice how you got it without anyone on the beach, less distractions.
high five 🙂
Thanks Jim, always surprised at what my iPhone can capture. As for the lack of people well the freezing cold wind and threatening rain clouds took care of them for me.
