    Coast Tram

    by Mkwire Written Sep 11, 2014

    As the name suggests,this tram runs along the entire coast of Belgium,from De Panne in the south,to Knokke on the Dutch border.The entire trip takes around 2 hours,and although the route sometimes veers inland much of the way it is right along the coast.

    De Kusttram

    by johngayton Written Jul 22, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Kusttram which runs the full 68 km of the Belgian coast is reckoned to be the longest tram line in the world. This starts at De Panne railway station (at Adinkerke) with its northern terminus at Knokke, on the Dutch border.

    During the summer the trams run in both directions with a peak frequency of every ten minutes, and in winter every 20 minutes. A single ticket, for any length of journey, costs 2 Euros (from ticket office or machine - 3 Euros from the driver) and there are various return, day tickets and period tickets available.

    De Panne itself has several tram stops and line runs through the centre of the town.

    Unfortunately on this section the "Coast Tram" doesn't actually run alongside the beaches (see pic #2) but it is, nevertheless, a very practical, and inexpensive, means of getting around.

    Arriving (and departing) by Train

    by johngayton Written Jul 22, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    De Panne is the terminus of the mainline from Brussels with an hourly service in both directions. This is a local stopping service with a total journey time of just over 2 hours. The trains pass through Ghent where connections can be made to the rest of the eastern Belgian Railways network for places such as Brugge and Antwerp.

    Although the station is called "De Panne" it is in fact in Adinkerke with central De Panne being about two kilometres further up the coast. The station however is adjacent to the Kusttram terminus which runs every 10 minutes in summer and 20 minutes in winter.

    Small train

    You can make a touristic roundtrip by small train.

    The train leaves from beach road, near the mini steam carrousel (at 14.30, 15.30, 16.30 and 17.30) Check departing times at the departure place.

    The price is 3.00 Euro, so that is not too expensive.

    By Billekarre

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We, lets say the locals, call it a Billekarre, that is kind of difficult (read impossible) to translate, others call it a Kwis-tax.

    Any way, it is kind of a go-cart. There are several shops where you can rent such a vehicle; you can rent for one hour to one day.

    There are all kind of vehicles, from one person to the big ones for about 10 persons.

    The drive is the muscle power of the participant, so it is just like riding a bike, difference only the person in the left front seat has the possibility of steering.

    It is great to do with a big group of friends.
    Only just be careful, as you drive among the sometimes busy traffic; you have no special privileges with this vehicle.

    PS a good tip: best places are in the rear, then you can stop peddling for a while the others do (good for lazy persons), and they want notice it . . .

  • The best middle to go to La Panne

    by joaodaconceicaonunes Written Feb 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Panne is situated in the West of the Belgian coast at the border with France. You can take the train from every city of Belgium. Then, arrived at destination, take the tram to move to the centre of La Panne or in the whole Belgian shore. It’s fast and safe! In addition, it’s the best way to meet people.

    Motorised vehicles for the younger ones

    by filipdebont Written Jun 20, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are even motorised vehicles for the younger ones, as they do not have the power to ride a go-cart.

    These special vehicles have an electric engine, and do not worry these cars go slowly.
