lighthouse Nieuwpoort

Lighthouse Nieuwpoort in June 2004. It stands at the eastern side of the mouth of the river Ijzer. It's the only Belgian lighthouse, which stands among nature and it logical can be reached only by walking or cycling. This is also the only possibility to reach the eastern pier, where the rarer visited one of the booth pier lights stands.
