The climate of Ostend (Belgium)
Ostend is the biggest seaside resort on the Flemish coast; situated between De Haan and Middelkerke. Ostend is probably the biggest tourist attraction on the Belgian coast. This is because of its central location and the many annual cultural festivals that are held here. The regionís rich fishing history is showcased in several venues. The most beautiful examples are: The North Sea aquarium and the Mercator which is a 19th century three-master. Ostend has a moderate maritime climate with mild winters and moderate summers with temperatures around 20 degrees Celsius on average. The westerly winds have little influence on the climate because of the Atlantic Gulf Stream. Sea temperatures rarely drop below 5 degrees Celsius because of the influence of the Gulf Stream.
