The most beautiful beach in the Netherlands
The famous beach of Zandvoort is endless and has something for everyone. The direct train link from Amsterdam takes you from the capital to the beach in 30 minutes. So as soon as the sun comes out, people flock to this popular beach. It's perfect for lying around on one of the beach beds all day, or if you just want to have a bite to eat with your feet in the sand after work. With 37 pavilions spread out over 9 kilometers, there's always one that suits you. From lounging in luxury with tapas in a beach club or grabbing some old fashioned fried fish from stall on the boulevard, the choice is yours. Or would you rather drink a mojito under a palm tree in a Cuban atmosphere? That too is possible on the beach in Zandvoort.
In autumn and winter, nothing beats a long walk along the beach with your dog. Clearing your head by the sea and then warming up by the fire place in one of the five permanent beach pavilions. If you're looking for more action, there are some places where you can access the beach with your horse. Gallop through the water in the light of the setting sun! Check out beach rules for all the relevant information about the possibilities.
The beach in Zandvoort is not only perfect for sunbathing, swimming and doing nothing, but everyone who loves water sports will love Zandvoort. There are several certified surfing schools and water sports centers where you can learn to surf, kite, SUP, canoe or raft. And if you're already experienced at water sports, you can rent equipment there or just hang out and have a drink and a chat.
There are plenty of parking spaces , but Zandvoort's unique location means it is very convenient for public transport. From the Zandvoort train station, a five minute walk along the Boulevard de Fauvage takes you to the central part of the beach. Are you looking for a quieter stretch of sand? Walk a bit further north, to where the Boulevard de Fauvage becomes the Boulevard Barnaart, or further south towards the water tower, along the Boulevard Paulus Loot. Just 10 minutes walking can give you all the space and quiet you want.
