Ostend International Airport is a 12-minute drive from Laurina’s Cove. This makes your apartment an ideal “base” to combine an “exotic” holiday destination such as Alicante, Antalaya, Bodrum, Burgas, Corfu, Djerba, Gran Canaria, Hurghada, Rhodes, and many others with a stay on our Belgian coast. The advantage? Low cost airport, small-scale and fast, close by and quickly accessible.
