Tides | Ebb and flood

The beaches of Bredene are never the same width because of the tides. For example, if you take a relaxing walk on the beach, it is useful to know when it is high or low tide.

On this page you will find the astronomical water level forecast for Oostende. This free tidal information is only intended for private leisure beach activities, such as hiking, sunbathing and beach recreation. These tidal predictions are based on a non-authoritative static model, they do not consider current weather conditions and may therefore deviate ±15 minutes in reality.

Getijden

These tidal predictions are based on a non-authoritative static model, they do not consider current weather conditions and may therefore deviate ±15 minutes in reality.

Ebb and flow

Getijden

The phase of retreating water is called ebb. A beach will get bigger during ebb. In the Oosterschelde or Waddenzee, mud plates will appear, which makes it possible to go mudhiking to the islands. At the end of ebb period, the water is at the lowest point: this is called low tide.

The phase of rising water is called flow. A beach will then get smaller, narrower. Big mud plates, like in the Waddenzee or Oosterschelde, will overflow with water during flow. The water level reached at the end of the flow phase is called high tide.

The time between the start of one flow and the start of the next flow is on average 12 hours and 25 minutes.
