Europe Hotel, 4* Ostend
Belgium’s Most Popular Beach Resort
Belgium’s most popular beach resort, Ostend has individual charm with its colourful sea front and yacht-filled marina. Enjoy horse drawn carriage rides, bustling markets and the miniature railway, or try your luck at the casino, Ostend’s famous centrepiece. Ostend, the City by the Sea, also offers over 5 miles of sandy beaches as well as a vibrant town with museum, shops and market.
Sunday: After joining your holiday coach, we make our way to Dover for the short sea crossing to Calais. We then continue via the auto-routes of France and Belgium to our resort hotel in Ostend. We have a welcome drink on arrival and porterage is included.
Room and buffet breakfast.
Monday - Wednesday – At leisure in Ostend with two included excursions.
Ostend has been the ‘Queen of the Belgian Coast’ since its 19th-century heyday when it was a royal holiday spot and prestigious European watering hole. There are plenty of reasons that still remain to justify a visit to Ostend; great sandy beaches, a casino, racetrack, art museums, spa and good shopping opportunities.
After breakfast today we have an included excursion visiting Ghent, the historic, medieval city that is fast becoming one of Europe’s most popular short break destinations. Ghent, the capital of East Flanders, which over the years has been given several names: historic heart of Flanders, a city of all times is one of the most beautiful, historic cities in Europe. The city combines an impressive past with a vivid present.
Blankenberge began life as a fishing village, but with a beautiful golden coastline, it’s no surprise that it has developed into one of Belgium’s most stylish seaside resorts. The promenade is perfect for strolling and stretches for miles with golden sands on one side and the temptation of unique boutique shopping, cafés and restaurants on the other.
Last Day: After breakfast, we travel back through Belgium and France to Calais for our return to England.
