Zandvoort is one of the most famous seaside resorts in the Netherlands and the 9 km long beach is its biggest attraction. You can have a great time here for four seasons. On the beach, but of course also on the water. Drifting in the sea, waiting for the right wave or just SUPPING quietly behind the surf. You've never stood on a board before, but would like to give it a try? There are various surf schools scattered around the beach where you can take lessons or rent equipment. In addition, various surf camps are organised in the summer. The calm sound of the waves in the surf makes the beach an ideal place to relax. Yoga classes are regularly organised on the beach. The beach and the water make you feel like you can escape from everyday life, so surf, relax and enjoy the beautiful beach.
Water sports zones
Zandvoort has been designated as a daredevil sports location since 2016. The location where you can practice extreme beach and water sports, such as kite surfing and wave surfing. But because Zandvoort is also one of the most famous and popular seaside resorts in the Netherlands, it can be crowded with bathers in the summer. To make sure that everyone can go to the beach safely, zones have been created for fast water sports and zones for swimmers. During the summer months, from 15 April to 1 October, water sports enthusiasts must stay within these 'black' zones. From 1 October to 15 April, water sports enthusiasts can enjoy the sea everywhere.
Use the water sports zones for sailing and landing, but once at sea, you must also keep to the zoning. This expires 150 metres from the waterline, after which you can move freely from north to south Zandvoort. On the map below, the water sport zones in Zandvoort are clearly indicated.
