Belgian Coast Tourism reports a good end to 2015


Belgian-Coast-Tourism-1With an average of 17 million tourists per day and a turnover of 2.7 billion euros, 2015 proved to be a ‘good year’ for tourism on the Belgian Coast, as indicated by Westtoer, the regional tourism office.

The Christmas holidays had drawn many people to the coast, ending the year for the tourism industry with a bang. The year had a lovely spring, a beautiful summer and a mild autumn, which also attracted many tourists. The hotel sector also posted good results and for the first time in many years, the number of rooms rose.

“Turnover in tourism from both day trips and longer stays was excellent. With an annual turnover of 2.7 billion euros, the coast remains the top tourist destination in Flanders,” said Westtoer President, Franky De Block.
