De garnaalvissers van Oostduinkerke
The horsefishers make you dream about what it used to be like back in the day... The big farmhorses pull the shrimpsnet for hours and hours behind them and that is how they catch the shrimp. The freshest shrimp in the whole world! Definitely go and eat or have a drink in "peerdevisscher" a restaurant run by a horsefisher and his wife!
Het Nationaal Visserijmuseum
The National Fisheries Museum in Oostduinkerke retraces the history of Oostduinkerke's fishermen, who were known for their daring and skill right up to the Dunkirk fisheries bosses, who came to recruit them for the Icelandic trade.
In 2004 the old fishing museum was demolished and replaced by a complete new building in which the fishing boat OD1 Martha, which used to lie in the courtyard and was being restored, found its final resting place. In the freely accessible courtyard next to it there is still an original fisherman's cottage (part of the museum) and a fisherman's inn called Estaminet De Peerdevisscher.

Het openluchtzwembad op de zeedijk
Oostduinkerke is the only seaside resort on our coast with an open-air swimming pool along the seabed. The swimming pool is a rare combination of protected heritage and a modern pool. The beach service centre was fully restored to its original appearance, with the restoration of brickwork, tiles and dyke watch on the roof.
The water in the pool is a combination of mains water and thirty per cent seawater, the whole being controlled by an up-to-date underground installation.
