How to reach us

eCOAST Belgium is located in the harbor of Ostend, close to the InnovOcean site and the fish market.

 

By public stransport from the Ostend railway station

 

- Ferry service

 

From the centre of Ostend (Visserskaai) there is e free ferry service for pedestrians and cyclists to the InnovOcean site, located at the other side of the harbor channel. To reach the ferry you have to go to the right when leaving the Ostend railway station. You cross one of the bridges and go right again alongside the Visserskaai until you reach the jetty of the ferry close to the North Sea Aquarium.

 

Upon reaching the InnovOcean site you walk alongside the shops near the fish market until you reach the second roundabout where you take the first exit. The brick Most-building where the offices of eCOAST are located is the second building on your left hand side, beyond the automatic gates.

 

- Free bicycle

 

The city of Ostend makes sure that free bicycles are at your disposal. The yellow-red bicycles (including a lock) can be used for free for one day. The user only has to fill out a form and accept the terms of agreement. To reach these, walk alongside the containers at the Churchill-parking lot (upon leaving the railway station cross the station square to the right).

 

- Tram

 

From the railway station take the tram with direction "Knokke" up to the stop "Weg naar vismijn". Halfway the Vismijnlaan, at the first roundabout you take the third exit on to the Esplanadestraat. The eCOAST offices are located beyond the automatic gates in the brick building on your left hand side.

 

By car from the E40 highway

 

At the end of the E40/A10 you enter Ostend and you follow exit 4, with direction Blankenberge (N34). After the traffic lights, a roundabout, an overpass and the blue bridges, you take left at the fourth traffic lights (or you follow the road signs for "VLIZ - InnovOcean site"). Mind the tram crossing the road!

After crossing the tram tracks take right immediately, and take the first one left on this road (Nieuwewerfkaai). Halfway down the Vismijnlijn take the third exit at the first roundabout on to the Esplanadestraat. The eCOAST offices are located beyond the automatic gates in the brick building on your left hand side. Parking space is available behind the building.
