Default To ikeharel: The dunes

Thank you Ike,

Perhaps I should put what I showed in perspective.

Belgium has a coastline of only 65 km.
In addition to a few ports and marinas, this coastline consists of sandy beaches and a number of seaside resorts.
The share of the dunes in the total coastal landscape is quite limited.
Moreover in the past, a large part of the dunes was lost to be built on.

Now the dunes are a protected nature reserve. What remains is only a quite small area, but every coastal municipality has a small area with dunes.

So what I showed is rather small in size. You should certainly not think that there are vast dune areas in Belgium.
The Netherlands, which has much more coast, also has larger dune areas. Luxembourg, of course, has none.

Kind regards,
