The municipality of Westvoorne has grown into a recreational and natural area in the last decades.  This destination has rich fauna and flora thanks to the Voornes Duin, being one of the most species-rich dunes of Western Europe. Having a long-term vision, the municipality has declared they will preserve the natural areas while making them more accessible to nature lovers. 92% of the municipality area is already non-buildable and it’s extended to 100% when it comes to the coastline (pavilions only). Plus, there are two Blue Flags on the bathing (certification by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE))
