Lakeside Paradise

Lakeside Paradise started in 2012 as a totally new watersports club in Knokke-Heist. The location, located on the shores of Lake Duinenwater, is very easily accessible by public transport since bus stop is 20 metres away, and train and tram stop barely 500 m away. Those arriving privately by bike or car can park in front of the door.

Lakeside Paradise itself consists of a Pro Shop, a Sport Hostel, a full restaurant and bar, and a large terrace with sandy beach that gives a great view of all the action.

That action consists of the first wakeboarding cableway of Flanders, 720 m long, where you can waterski, wakeboard, wakeskate or kneeboard with 8 people at the same time. 20 Different "units OBSTACLES are helping to ensure that the Lakeside Paradise cable park ranks among the world's top 10.
In addition, there is a 2.0 small cable car Where beginners from the age of 6 can easily learn everything, or where advanced wakeboarders can practice. This is also the perfect solution for water sports enthusiasts who want to learn how to foilboard.
A few years back, the second fullsize cable was added, the Rookie Cable. This cable car turns at a slower speed and, unlike the Pro Cable, to the right side. There are plenty of obstacles here too.

All equipment is available. Thus, O'Neill 5mm full wetsuits to keep you warm at all times, beginner and advanced wakeboards, water skis, kneeboards, wakeskates, foilboards, mandatory helmets and life jackets are provided. Via a membership you enjoy all kinds of benefits such as season pass, year pass, winter pass, 10 and 20 turn cards, various discounts and you are also a member of Surfers Paradise! So 2 for the price of 1. It is advisable to take out physical accident insurance at the same time.

During weekdays, outside school holidays, there is space for stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking. Inflatable targets also allow a game of kayak polo. All this is ideally suited to organising school sports days, corporate events, team building activities, sporty birthday parties, bachelor days, family parties and you name it. Sea classes and water sports camps are also on the menu, as the hostel with 10 rooms and 80 beds also offers accommodation.

Are you coming as a supporter or as a regular visitor? Then this is paradise for you too. In addition to full-board options for groups, the restaurant offers tapas, cocktails and a healthy, tasty, fresh and affordable menu card which is updated every season. In summer, there are the regular BBQ evenings or paella options.

Lakeside Paradise stands for a water sports club where everyone is welcome and where all visitors should be able to enjoy the water sports on offer in a family, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. "Good" is not enough when "better" is possible. We stand for democratic water sports at every level, with safety, good organisation and top service as our top priorities.


In order to achieve our goal, quality rather than quantity counts and this in all respects. Lakeside Paradise wants and needs to distinguish itself from all other similar locations in Belgium, Europe and worldwide. Our youth work must have such an aura that parents can confidently entrust their children to us in a safe and educational environment. The enthusiasm of the young people must also appeal to the not so young. We want Lakeside Paradise to be seen as a place where people enjoy spending time, feel good and can easily immerse themselves in the prevailing relaxed atmosphere on and off the water.
