Monitored zones & first aid

Monitored zones

Swimming in the sea is only allowed while the rescue posts are monitored by our teams.

Opening period

From 1 July to 31 August 2022, the following areas are monitored by a full-size team.

  • Heist: from Vissershuldeplein to Parkstraat
  • Duinbergen: from Anemonenlaan to M. Quaillestraat
  • Albertstrand: from Lentelaan to Meerlaan
  • Albertstrand: from the casino to Rubensplein
  • Knokke: from Lichttorenplein to Duindistelstraat
  • Het Zoute: from Golvenstraat to Westhinderstraat
  • Lekkerbek (Het Zoute): at the height of Appelzakstraat

Fancy a dip earlier in the season? On certain weekends, there is a limited cover in 3 zones: Heist, Albertstrand and Lichttorenplein. So then it's already possible to swim, but only in those 3 areas.

In 2022, these weekends are:

  • 7-8 May

  • 14-15 May

  • 21-22 May

  • 26-29 May

  • 4-6 June

  • 11-12 June

Five zones are monitored from 15 to 30 June 2022 and after the season from 1 to 15 September 2022: Heist, Duinbergen, Albertstrand, Lichttorenplein and Zoute.

Opening hours

The rescue posts are open from 10.30 am to 6.30 pm

FIRST AID posts

Our First Aid posts can be contacted for assistance on the beach, and to obtain child safety wristbands.
