Zandvoort Beach for Amsterdam

Lose yourself in the slums

Zandvoort used to be a fishermans village. The men went out to sea to catch fish and the women walked to Haarlem with the catch in baskets on their backs. Over the 'Visserschpad' to the fish market on the Grote Markt to trade the goods.

The village still has many traces of the fishing era. You can take a lovely stroll through the small streets behind the beach, the 'sloppies', past the small fishermen's houses and white and sand coloured villas.


Zandvoort centre, around the Zandvoort museum, including the Achterom and the Rozenobelstraat.


All year round.
