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 21 July to 31 August 2021, 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

  • Knokke: from Lichttorenplein to Duindistelstraat
  • Het Zoute: from Golvenstraat to Westhinderstraat

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

In 2021, these weekends are:

  • 13-16 May

  • 21-24 May

  • 29-30 May

  • 5-6 June

  • 12-13 June

Five zones are monitored from 15 to 30 June 2021 and after the season from 1 to 15 September 2021: Heist (First aid Heldenplein), Duinbergen (First aid Duinbergenlaan), Albertstrand (First aid Zwaluwenlaan), Lichttorenplein (First aid Lichttorenplein) and Zoute (First aid Zeewindstraat).

Opening hours
