This time there were many beautiful photographies for an outside-exhibition (Biennal). So nice to walk and discover new regards, along the Promenade and in many other places!

Lovely soft sands
Jul 2020
Everyone loves a day at the beach and I am no exception - it's one of the main reasons of course why people choose to visit the town. This one is gorgeous with lovely soft golden sand and warm waters to paddle in - or swim in if you can. Great for all ages.

Sandy Beach
Aug 2020 • Friends
For me I always associate the beach with the sand. I enjoy sitting on the sand and enjoying the great views of the beach and this beach does just that. So, I pretty much enjoyed my visit there..

Great place for weekend
Jul 2020 • Couples
Been here with some friends, out plan was to sit a little bit on the sand to get some sun. During the day we visit it it was very windy so keep in mind to take a hoodie with you. The beach has nice sands , and a lot of garbage bins where you can throw your trash. Even though you can see here and there some trash inside the sand.

See the sea
Mar 2020
Ostend is a cosmopolitan city by the sea, with a rich, historical past. Friendly, relaxed & welcoming, this lively bustling coastal resort on the Belgian North Sea Coast makes an ideal year-round destination, with over five miles of wide sandy white beaches stretching on either side of the picturesque harbour.

You have several options:
1) Get some exercise & head straight to the long, wide, pedestrianised Albert 1 promenade & stroll along past the casino and historic Royal Galleries
2) Go to the sandy beach, swim & just hang out and sunbathe
3) Check out the abundance of shops, and superb restaurants, cafes, bistros & bars.

Belgium may not be famous for its beaches, but it should be, & Ostend certainly is a resort for all seasons.

Wonderful beach in a great town!
Sep 2019
The beach is clean and like everything in Ostend, it is designed to make your visit enjoyable. For people with kids, there are markers every 100 feet or so with different shapes (like a smiley face or an airplane) so it's easy not to forget your place on the beach.

Snacks, drinks and beer are available on the promenade which runs for miles along the beach. And during the summer, the town erects bars and restaurants right on the beach! It is so nice to sit and have a snack under a palm tree!

The sunsets are incredible and the people are very friendly and helpful. Everyone goes out of their way to make sure everyone else is having a good time.

The train station is maybe a ten minute walk from the beach. There are so many places to stay and with everything there is to see and do in Ostend and the surrounding area, it makes sense to stay a while! There is everything from a great hostel to apartments for rent and every level of hotel in between.

Take the world's longest coastal tram up and down the entire length of the country in under 3 hours star to finish - but stop along the way and explore the dozen or so towns along the way.

The food in Ostend is excellent - ranging from food stands to rated restaurants.

Enjoy this amazing seaside town and you will fall in love with the beach and the town!

Great sandy beach with long Victorian style promenade
Feb 2020
This beach is great even in the winter - but wrap up warm. The promenade is ideal for long walks (miles) or cycle rides along the coast. In Oostend, there are plenty of restaurants and bars serving very good food, though I note that they are much more expensive than similar restaurants over the border in northern France.

Fantastic beach even in the winter
Dec 2019
The beach looks absolutely beautiful, the sky turns pink and orange in various hues. If you are in Ostende - just half an hour from Bruges, don't miss it!
