Not far from Nieuwpoort, on the Belgian North Sea coast, you will find Kompas Camping Westende. The camping site is not located directly on the beach, but this can easily be reached on foot. Just be careful when crossing the N34 and the coastal tramway. Camping Westende is a large, well maintained family camping site with spacious pitches and a wide selection of rental accommodation.
The pitches on Kompas Camping Westende are spacious and it is evident that in high season mainly Belgian and Dutch families with children visit this camping site. Special prices apply to these families and special family sanitary facilities are also available. There is a lovely water playground for children and numerous activities are organised.
Trekker huts and 'honeycombs'
On the camping site there is a variety of rental accommodation, such as trekker and camping huts for up to four persons, complete with private cooking facilities and a fridge. Each hut has a terrace and its own camping table.
The Camping Bee's are unique: huts for two persons in the shape of a honeycomb. Families can rent two of these sleeping units together with a living unit. These are called Camping Bee Family.
Fresh fish and Belgian beers
The camping site restaurant, Taverne de Piete, has a new menu with an extensive range of snacks, salads, pasta, fresh fish dishes and desserts. You can go there for lunch and dinner, but also for a typical Belgian pint. Belgian 'frietjes' (chips) and other snacks are available from the chip shop on the camping site.

We phoned and booked a pitch before arriving. We expected a full size pitch. What we got was a camper pitch with no room to use our awning etc. 5.30 am we were woken by our very close neighbours and from then on it was noisy. Having pre booked and paid for 5 nights. We asked for a better pitch. We were told none were available and we could not have a refund. We cut our losses and came to Poldervallei. Excellent site.Large grass pitches
Very well organised campsite with wonderful showers and toilets. Pitches are well laid out and the extra comfort pitches could accommodate our long van with the trailer attached. As we were off season, we could not sample the bar or restaurant, but it is only a 15 minute walk to the village of Westende where there is a large choice of eateries.
To clarify first that there are 2 Camping Westende sites. This is the one that is for tourers. the pitches are large, flat, grassed and private with hedges and electric at pitch. The sanitary facilities are good with many dotted about the site. There is a small stellplatz area for motorhomes at the entrance which would be cheaper outside of ACSI card season. A short walk takes you to a lovely golden sand beach but appears to have no swimming in the sea. We used this campsite as out base before catching the Eurotunnel home rather than stay near Calais and it was very relaxing for our last night of travels.
Very nice site within a few hundred yards of the beach and the wonderful promenade which runs along the coast. It was very wet while we were there, but the staff were welcoming and helpful. The sanitary facilities are of an exceptionally high standard and we would recommend this anyone and will definitely return.
Mostly permanently pitched Dutch and Belgian caravans. Not very attractive or friendly, and definitely not our cup of coffee.
