Knokke-Heist - Lac de la Réserve (Zegemeer) - On Explore #387

Knokke-Heist is a delicious small seaside city and resort located in the Belgian province of West Flanders. The municipality comprises the towns of Knokke, Knokke-Zoute, Knokke-Albert Plage, Duinbergen, Ramskapelle and Westkapelle. It is one of Belgium’s better known and more affluent seaside resorts.

Knokke is famous for its long sandy beaches and seaside promenade lined with cafés and restaurants. The area known as Het Zoute (Le Zoute in French) includes the exclusive Royal Zoute Golf Club, located in the dunes, and an impressive collection of summer villas and mansions.

Knokke is also home to the Zwin, a 158 ha coastal nature reserve. This large salt-water marsh area is also a protected bird sanctuary.

A butterfly garden (Vlindertuin ) was established near Moeder Siska, a coffeehouse made famous for its clover-shaped Belgian waffles, the recipe of which dates from 1892.
