The whole west coast of the Netherlands is a single long beach. The nearest stretch to Amsterdam is Zandvoort—27 minutes by train from Amsterdam Centraal, every 30 minutes. In summer there are extra trains, change trains at Haarlem. Zandvoort is very crowded on warm days in summer: parts of the beach attract the in-crowd, others the somewhat less so.

Get around[edit]

Zandvoort is a small place, so you can get around walking or rent a bike from one of the many bike rental stores in Zandvoort.

The nearest bike rental store to the train station is Zilt at Sea. Zilt at Sea is also a few steps from the beach.


The circuit in Zandvoort, from 1952 until 1985 Zandvoort was one of the circuits that organized the Formula 1.


Crowds flock here to find a spot on the sand and enjoy the sun and the sea. Sunbathing, swimming, beach walks and of course casual drinks in one of the many beach side bars is the core of all activity here.
