Sweet escape close to home

Daydream about the gold of the wide beaches with fine-grained sand, position yourself in a beach chair with an aperitif or stroll on the Zeedijk past terraces and art galleries. For those who are still looking for a sweet escape close to home this summer; Knokke-Heist in Belgium is a true must-visit.

Discover each of the five districts, full of world-class gastronomy, shopping and art: lively Knokke, elegant Zoute, family Heist, hip Duinbergen and the natural Polders. They each have their own character and offer their own experience. Hospitality takes shape here in hundreds of unique shops, restaurants, brasseries, art galleries, events and exhibitions, hotels and guesthouses. They seduce with authentic charm or worldly style. 

However, for those who want a more sporty approach, the Royal Zoute Golf Club is a good base. Here you can enjoy one of the most prestigious golf courses in Belgium on 80 hectares and 36 holes. 

hidden gem

The Royal Zoute course has many admirers. Nick Faldo, who has won the Masters and British Open three times, once called the outdoor court one a hidden gem. A hidden gem that he couldn't get enough of. The Briton won the Belgian Open here in 1994, which has been organized several times in Knokke in recent decades. 

After a day on the course you can go to the restaurant for a meal or just a refreshing drink. If you want to make it completely bond; Royal Zoute Golf Club also has a hotel.
