Ideal to discover the belgian coastline without bothering with cars, parkingspace etc; Very frequent trams take you to your destination and for short distances it could be faster than if you had used your car. There are different choices for tickets so it's advisable to inform which formula is best for you. Look trough the windows and enjoy the views.

When on the Flemish coast, a ride on the kusttram is an absolute must. A day ticket (dagpas) bought in advance at one of the "lijnwinkels" (also at many newsagents) costs a bargain € 5,- and gives you access to the kusttram and also the busses of De Lijn. The tram goes some 60 km from De Panne station to... More

We bought a 3 day ticket for 10euro pp which was great value as we saw the whole of the Belgian coast line, hopping on and off as we felt like it (trams run every 15 mins in each direction so there is very little waiting around). And you get free transport on the De Lijn busses also, so you... More

It is fast, it is on time, it is frequent in Summer time. I use it frequently when traveling to DePanne or to Knokke.

We travelled to De Panne on this. It was really nice as thf sea was on one side and town on the other. It's s great way to explore the city and coast line. It's relatively cheap and fast. Well recommended!

Great , easy and cheap way to explore the Belgian coast line. In every coast village u can get on and of and go explore. Best way is to buy a DayPass with which u can travel all day long

The Kusttram is an easy way to get around the Belgian coast, but beware, it's crazy in the summertime! Us locals tend to avoid using the tram then, because it's chock-full of people (mainly tourists). If in a holiday season or when school is out for the day, you're traveling with kids in a pram, I suggest you find alternative... More

Nice way to travel along the seashore but expensive for a big family (1 ride - you need at least 2 - costs 1 Euro 40 Eurocents).

Went from the hotel to the main railway station by tram. Value for money is excellent. You can travel all day for very little. On the way there in late morning we got a seat and everything was OK. Coming back at tea time was a different experience alltogether. To say it was crowded doesn't do it justice. I've been... More
