This is a good way to travel, the route covers 58 stops between almost the Dutch Boarder to almost the French Boarder. The nicest way we have found is to Du Pann which is the French direction, for a distance it runs alongside the sea, just outside the city on the left is the restored museum of the Atlantic Wall...

We have done this a few times now travelling the length from De Panne to Knokke. Great way to travel and see the Belgian coast. We just got on and off when we saw somewhere we wanted to eat or a piece of the sea that looked interesting. The low floor trams made it easy traveling with a person with... More

This regular tram enabled us to visit wherever we wished to see along the coast for a very cheap ticket. It was clean, efficient and ran very regularly.

No more parkingproblems. Cheaperthan ween you have to park your car. Easy, fast, and during the holidays the Kusttram picks you up every 10 minute. Meanwhile it is the best way for sideseeing and watching people.

Nice and quick way ti move from one point at the Belgian coast to another. Often driving along the coast, it is kind of romantic.

Buy a pre-paid ten trip ticket for the tram and bus sevice for 14 Euro and the cost is 1.40 Euro per trip. Whether that trip is one stop or you can go from De Panne Station to Knokke - Heist (One end of the tram to the last one) for the same price. The trams are very regular, every... More

Tram is very easy to use and cheap as well. The only downside is the tram can be very busy and crowded a bit like London Underground.

You can visit the whole Belgian coast without having to use your car thanks to this tram. There is a tram every 10 minutes which is very convenient. We were in Ostend and bought a special ticket Zwin & tram for a very good price. Really pleasant to travel with this tram.
