Do not park your vehicle in the Indigo car parks. I parked my car on September 6, 2023 from approximately 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Indigo car park on the Koninginnelaan near the Groot Strand. To my considerable surprise, the rate for this is 15.40 €.

This seems excessive to me and I ask that the city council discuss this with the company in question.

It is regrettable that the city of Ostend allows its visitors to be milked in this way by a private company that probably realizes mega profits in this way.

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.

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!

We stopped here whilst on our way back towards the home port. It is a lovely, litter free beach, especially on a sunny day.

An amazing beach ....long and sandy. A lot is dog friendly. And there is a promenade if you don't want to get your shoes sandy.

The many many miles of golden sand beaches in Ostend will leave you simply stunned. You won't go hungry, thirsty or without ice cream on a warm day for too long as the area has plenty of eateries to pick from.

Very scenic area and the wonderful sunsets can be appreciated at this location.

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.

The beach is within walkable distance of the train station, where you can park for 1,70€ per hour (good deal), and his accessible to people and teir dogs all year-long. I would not visit on a sunny summer day, but winter is the best season to visit as the beach is deserted. We were lucky enough this time to spot a stray seal on the beach.

Temperatures apparently got as high as 30-33 today, and remained balmy into the evening.

Having left Bruges late, I decided to have a late night stroll along the beach, which was really pleasant, due to the gentle sea breeze.

Clearly it was also pleasant for a young couple who were frolicking in the sand (shall we say), and clearly engaging in ‘horizontal refreshment.’ They were unfortunately alerted to my presence, as I assume they could see the glow of a lit cigarette, and ironically, it was I who was very embarrassed.

I wasn’t wearing night vision goggles, so I can’t tell you how clean the beach is, but I assume - clean and tidy, like all the others in the area.
