Good public transport system. The only problem is that it is too popular as I have not yet been able to get a seat !

The tram travels virtually from the French border to the Dutch one. It is a great way to see most of the Belgian coast. Trams are scheduled every few minutes. Preserved trams also run on special occasions,

Punctual method of seeing this beautiful coastline. Excellent value as well at 12 Euros for 3 days unlimited travel. You can buy tickets at tram stops or on the tram itself.

Reckon one I was on was a gift from Queen Victoria to King Leopold, but it was great! Cheap as chips & 4 trams per hour trundling up & down the coast, what more do you want?

This Tramway diserves all Belgian beaches and is a very pratical experience for all towns and the 4 ports; there are parkings outside the citys.

In August, we will be foot passengers on Hull to Zeebrugge ferry, then travelling by the Kusttram to Ostend. Is the tram stop near to Zeebrugge port, or will we have to walk a distance (with luggage)? Also, is there more than one stop in Ostend?

You can Park Next to the Railway Station. We have actually Parked Along Side the Tram Station over the Weekend when we stayed in Oostend.
