“Great day out!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We discovered De Panne purely by accident. While on a day trip to Adinkerke for cheap tobacco, my wife asked a shop assistant where else we could go to spend the rest of the day and we were recommended to visit De Panne. The town blew is away! A beautiful, sandy beach, lovely pedestrianised walkway running parallel to the beach and several quaint shops and restaurants.

We've been back several times at all times of the year and thoroughly enjoy our day every time, as our three year old doesn't need hot weather to play on the beach!

At the far end of the beach there are VERY clean public toilets (free), and you'll hear very few British voices all day as the Brits don't seem to know De Panne exists. The only down side to that is that very few signs or menus are in English.

Beautiful place, you must pay De Panne a visit.

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Large, clean beach with soft golden sand. Lots of cafes on the sea front, plenty of free parking near by (avoid the 15 euro/day car park at the end of the beach!).

Plenty of space even on a hot sunny day. Didnt swim in the sea but did paddle in a "lagoon" that had been created by the receeding tide which was lovely and warm!
