Nieuwpoort, historic city on the Belgian coast

Maison Albert is located in the centre of the city with its centuries-old history. Wander through the streets; there are plenty of nice boutiques, coffee shops and fine restaurants that are open all year round.
A car-free 2 kilometer promenade connects Nieuwpoort-city with Nieuwpoort-bath. Within half an hour you walk to the beach. The marina you come across on the way gives you the ultimate holiday feeling. Rather lazy? Then take the tram to the coast.

There is plenty to do in the area. Rent bicycles and go out in the rich polder landscape. Go for a walk through the dunes or enjoy a wide range of water sports. Sailing, surfing, kayaking, wave carting, sports fishing, it’s all possible. Don’t be surprised if you spot a seal on your trip. They are often seen in the area. For the little ones there is a nice petting zoo and a subtropical swimming pool nearby.

Your own beach cabin

A nice touch of Maison Albert is that from mid-April to mid-September you have a fully equipped beach cabin* at your disposal in Nieuwpoort-Bad. How nice is that?

* Subject to the concession being granted by the city of Nieuport.


For nature lovers there is a lot to experience in Nieuwpoort and the surrounding area. The ‘Yzermonding’ nature reserve is unique on the Belgian coast, nowhere else is there a river mouth where beach, dune lands and polder connect.

Do you like some fresh air? Don’t you get enough of the smell of the North Sea? Then take a walk on one of the two piers of Nieuwpoort. With great sea views, the piers of Nieuwpoort are a must-see!


Cycling past junctions

Cycle along the sea dike, stroll along thousands of masts in Europe’s largest marina, step off to oversee the impressive mouth of the ’Yzer’, visit the fish auction, ride along the canals to Veurne or Diksmuide… plenty to see and discover around Nieuwpoort!

Mountain bike

Maison Albert is located along several mountain bike routes. Routes with various surfaces and difficulty. During your trip you will enjoy a vast beautiful landscape, the sea, fresh air and an environment that appeals to the imagination.

The Museum “on the Yser” is located on the European Peace site ‘on the Yser”, with the Pax gate and the Yser Tower. A real must see! From the roof terrace, 84 meters high you have a unique view over the entire front region.

Fish mine

Here you can literally and figuratively soak up the atmosphere. Auctioning fish is a spectacle that appeals to all senses. If you want to enjoy a tour of the fish auction and get up close to the fish auction, you can. Visit the fish mine of Nieuwpoort.

For the smallest of us

A go-kart ride is an absolute must during your stay on the coast. Children can let their imagination run wild and can feel like a policeman, an ice-cream seller or riding a horse with real reins. Or socialize with the whole family, sightseeing from bath to city on a big go-kart.

Water sports

The holiday home is located near the largest northern European marina with more than 2000 moorings, ideal for taking advantage of water sports recreation. This can of course also be done on the nearby “Spaarbekken” and on the many channels in Nieuwpoort.
