The 11 kilometer-long beach is equivalent to a very pleasant 11 kilometers walk. You can choose between several walking paths that interconnect. For cyclists there is the Bicycle Network. Opt for the Heritage Walking route that crosses the Concession, step into the footsteps of Einstein, trek the dunes on the Wooded Dunes Walking Route or go wander around on the numerous walking paths here and connect one node with the other. Cyclists can do the same on the Bicycle Network "De Kust", or venture onto the Old Dikes Cycling Route that explores De Haan, Vlissegem and Klemskerke alike. On the beach you and your family will experience great adventures. And also the parks La Potinière and the Astrid Park are a lot of fun. Skating, street theater and children's parties, in summer there is absolutely no obstacle for children to have loads of fun, there is something going on every day. The coastal tram is the ideal way to explore the coast. It takes you everywhere, fast and comfortably, and of course, it is environmentally friendly as well. You will not have to deal with traffic jams, parking problems and this type of stress. The coastal tram is also the perfect solution for visiting attractions in a fun and economical way, you can easily get to various events and shops this way. In summer every 10 minutes a coastal tram will come along. In winter it's every 20 minutes, and also during the off-season, while during Christmas and the Carnival, the tram stops by every fifteen minutes. With 68 stops between De Panne and Knokke there's always one in the neighborhood where you can get on and move from one place to another. At some stops there is an Lijnwinkel as well. Here you can obtain a travel ticket or a discounted rate of your travel ticket. De Haan stimulates all senses, as well as it spoils your taste buds. Bistros and classy restaurants allow you to discover the sea in a most “tasteful” manner. A nice (local) beer in a cozy and quiet café or an exotic cocktail on a sunny terrace? That's what the good life is about! In short, this is an excellent location for a stay in De Haan.
