Nieuwpoort, on the Belgian coast, is a smal town and port. It has historically been the theatre of many battles, and that alone makes Nieuwpoort well worth a visit. Walk around the old town centre and you’ll see several historic buildings. And if you’re up for a bit more action, the beach and the dunes will offer opportunities for a swim, a run, and many different water activities. Close to Nieuwpoort you’ll find the historic cities of Gent and Bruges, both excellent options for a city trip.
Belfast is the capital and the largest city of Northern Ireland. It started out as a small hamlet with fertile land along the mouth of the Lagan. Soon, marauders and pirates realised Belfast’s lough was deep and their shores were the perfect haven for repairing sea ravaged ships. Today Belfast is a wonderful city to explore! Visit the Titanic quarter waterfront, the Ulster Museum, or the Odyssey area where you’ll find lots of entertainment. And spend some time in one of Belfast’s many pubs.
