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

This is a good way to travel along the coast from De Panne to the other side Zeebrugge. Every 15 or 20 minutes there is a tram, more often in high season. Just expect it can be busy sometimes, especially when a lot of elderly people use it for free. But a lot of place to stand up. If there... More

For just €5 each (tickets available from the tourist information office beside the casino - and don't forget to put them into the machine at the entrance to the tram), we were able to travel from Ostend to De Panne and back, getting off to explore the various centres in between (though it has to be said that the coast...

purchased a day ticket and travelled from De Haan, to De Panne in the South, then back along the length of the coast, stopping off for beers and snacks at regular intervals until we reached the Northern end of the line. Unfortunately an overhead cable came down and we had to return to De Haan by bus, a great day... More

We bought a 3-day ticket from the ticket office and it was only 10 euros each and proved great value. Trams run every 10 minutes and get extremely busy. We travelled on around 7 occasions over the three days and only got a seat twice. Very efficient and great way to get along the coast.

Loving trams, loving narrow gauge rail - that a must to be visited. A day pass gor 5€ allows all day long travel, which in summer time can be ideally combined with the reast at the sea cost.
