Practicle measures to control the coronavirus in Nieuwpoort

The coronavirus has put our lives on hold for a while. Tourism in Nieuwpoort is also affected by the measures taken to contain the virus. Below is a summary of measures relating to tourism in Nieuwpoort, ranging from recreational restrictions to actual bans.

We must repeat the call by Governor Carl Decaluwé and Mayor Geert Vanden Broucke for people not to travel to the coast. Only journeys that are strictly necessary are allowed.  Consequently, people are asked to give up any plans to visit or stay in Nieuwpoort for the time being.   We will obviously welcome you all with open arms as soon as our joint efforts to defeat the virus have succeeded!
