De Panne - Westernmost point Belgium

Arriving at the beach, against the dunes, you will find a boulder which was placed in 1819 and is, since the independence of Belgium in 1830, its westernmost point. Just behind it is a holiday park and the De Panne village. The name comes from the word hollow, a bowl-shaped depth in the dunes which typifies the surroundings of this MOSTPOINT quite well. De Panne was created around 1782 to encourage coastal fisheries. It had no harbor, but in 1900 it had one of the largest fleets of the Flemish coast. These were flat-bottomed boats, pan barges, which were drawn on the beach. The project to create a harbor in De Panne was never carried out and the fishermen disappeared. In 1831 Pieter Bortier opened the first Pavillon de Bains. From the second half of the 19th century De Panne became more and more a sea side resort.
