7 Stunning Beaches You'll Love In The Netherlands!
Spring and summer are upon us! The sun is out, temps are on the rise and so, to the beach I say!
Time to touch up on those tan lines, wine, dine and relax = VitaminSEA!
It's one of my favorite things to do during warm weekends; leave the city behind for the day, grab a towel, a book, and my boys and go chill on the beach. Enjoy the blue skies above me with a glass of Rose, good vibes, lunch (and possibly dinner) and all in perfect sea views.
So where are the best beaches you ask? Read on!
TIP: Like you, many more people will be heading in the same direction of the beach meaning, traffic and parking problems are to be expected. Many of the roads leading to the beach are one lane narrow roads as these are on protected nature areas. To avoid this make sure you are on your way nice and early.
Noordwijk: This is the number one spot to go to!
Along this long stretch of beach, you have a great selection of beach clubs and pavilions to choose from, all offering fun in the sun. You can either sit in the restaurant or rent equipment to sit on the beach closer by the water such as chairs, shade and wind breakers. My two favorites are Brie Noordwijk where the service offered is top notch and you can even enjoy yoga lessons with the sea in the background. Club O is also a cool spot to spend the day.
Hippie Fish in Zandvoort is very easy breezy and lots of fun!
Zeeland's coastline down south is 650 kilometers long making it hard to choose just one stunning beach, the variety here is exceptional! To name my top two...Cadzand beach: This beach is well known for its beautiful surroundings as it is on the edge of the Zwin nature reserve, and for the shark teeth found there, millions of years old, waiting to be picked up. It's a special souvenir I still have on my shelf to remind me of days spent on this beach with my son when he was little, searching for these teeth. Westerduinpad beach is a broad sandy beach with play facilities for children making it a very attractive option for families however, it's actually all about the view!
Barbarossa Beach in Scheveningen is simply gorgeous!
Ubuntu Beach in Bloomingdale is very popular and for good reason!
Here is to a long, warm, and beautiful summer!
