Spring is in the air, as the new flowers start to bud, blue skies begin to show, love also blossoms. How about treating your other half to a romantic getaway in Ostend. There is so much to do together from the port & seaside town, snug bars, and endless sightseeing. We’ve put together some of the most romantic things to do in Ostend to get to know each other better or spend some quality time together.
Enjoy a Romantic Beach Stroll
Enjoy a romantic stroll on the beach Ostend is well known as a seaside town. While it’s not the right time of year for sunbathing or swimming in the sea (although some brave sea swimmers are out all year round!) a romantic walk along Albert I-Promenade will be a highlight of your romantic trip to Ostend. Stop in some of the cafes and stalls along the way to treat yourself to your last ice cream of the year or a coffee or Belgian hot chocolate if you’ve chosen a cool day. You should also take your time to ramble the streets of the city and enjoy the amazing street art, find some stylish shops, and dine in trendy cafes. It’s a great way to spend some quality time together, exploring the local area and stretching your legs.
Nothing says I love you like a box of chocolates, so when it comes to visiting Ostend, trying out the renowned Belgian chocolates is an essential part of your trip. This city has no shortage of chocolate shops and sells everything from pralines, caramels, truffles, and even chocolate figurines! Even a trip to the shops themselves is a charming experience, so do fill up a box of silky smooth treats to share with a loved one while you explore the city.
There is nothing more romantic than holding each other’s hand and strolling across the romantic city of Ostend. Climb abroad the Three Master Mercator, an impressive ship that appeals to the imagination has been placed for everyone to see its true beauty at the Ostend marina since 1960. Step aboard this mighty ship to uncover her remarkable history. You should also visit The Atlantic Wall, one of two museums at Raversyde consisting of over 60 bunkers, observation posts, positions and a 2-kilometrenetwork of trenches and subterranean corridors. After an intense day of learning, visit the nearby park for a peaceful walk.
Visit a Spa
What could be nicer than a relaxing, pampering day in a spa with the one you love? Visit the beautiful Villa Aqua Spa in the pretty village of Stene where you can completely relax in the different saunas, swimming pools, whirlpool, hammam, sunbathing area and more. They are paired with Ostend City Spa where you can enjoy a range of treatments. Book yourself an invigorating facial treatment, a soothing body massage or a culinary treat in their bistro.
