The Belfius Zoute Sandcastle Challenge



The Sandcastle Challenge is THE traditional family event in Knokke-Heist since 1923.

Parents, children and friends meet for a unique moment of tradition, laughter and pure fun. Picture this: teams of 10 participants competing to build the sturdiest sandcastle that will resist the rising tide. No less than 1,000 young and old diggers will give their all so that in the end, only one team will remain!


    It's that time of the year again - time for the annual family gathering where Grandma shows her famous photo album. It may be a tradition, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Can't wait to see what the next 100 years will bring.


    The Belfius Sandcastle Challenge isn't just a competition, it's a chance to make unforgettable memories with your loved ones. Bring your friends, bring your family and get ready to have a sandy good time.


    From sand in your toes to sun on your face, the Belfius Sandcastle Challenge is an experience you'll never forget. Whether you're competing or just cheering from the sidelines, it's a day full of laughter, fun and maybe even a little friendly competition.


    Winning the Belfius Zoute Sandcastle Challenge is like finding a unicorn - rare, magical, and worthy of a legendary prize ceremony. Okay, maybe we're exaggerating a bit, but the prizes are pretty awesome and the ceremony is definitely one for the books.
