West Flanders (Dutch: West-Vlaanderen) is the westernmost province of Flanders and of Belgium. It borders on (clockwise from the North) the Netherlands, the Belgian provinces of East Flanders (Oost-Vlaanderen) and Hainaut (Henegouwen), France and the North Sea. Its capital is Bruges (Brugge). It has a surface area of 3151 km² and is divided into eight administrative districts (arrondissementen) which contain 64 municipalities.

The whole Belgian North Sea coast, an important destination for tourism in Belgium, is in West Flanders. There is a tram line along the whole coast: De Panne - Ostend (Oostende) - Knokke-Heist.
