Nature Reserve of the Yser
The nature reserve in Nieuwpoort is unique in Belgium. The freshwater of the Yser, the only river in our country that directly discharges into the North Sea, mixes with the salty sea water which creates a biotope for plants and animals.
You reach the nature reserve through the Halvemaanstraat or the free ferry service (jetty on the seafront).
