we always use the coastal tram it runs every 5-10 minutes and you can get a day rider for as little as 8 euro. I wish my city or even country had one.

We hopped on the tram at Westende having bought our day ticket from the kiosk at the stop, 6 euros. Crowded at first but soon got a seat and sat back and enjoyed the ride.

This tram travels along the whole Belgian coast from De Panne to Knokke. Very convenient and safe. Buy a Lijnkaart for reduced rates (10 trips for 14 euros - about half price!).

The Kusttram is One of the best ways to see the coast line in Ostend. You may chose nice stops for a swim , eat or walk.

It is Super to buy a One Day pass for Euro 6 and Travel Up and Down the Coast. Lots of Lovely Little Town to Explore or Even hit a Beach or Two

A great way to visit the resorts along the coast from Knokke-Heist to De Panne. The tram stops are very close to the main promenades so you don't have far to walk. €6 for a day ticket or €12 for a 3-day pass if you buy from the Tourist Information Office (near to the Casino) and they will give you...
