Dreaming of white beaches and deep blue oceans we never think of the Dutch coast but there are some really good places close to the sea that will bring you in the holiday mood.
UBUNTU | Zandvoort
This is how its suppose to be, chill atmosphere, beautiful decoration, relaxed people, swings.. What else do you wish for? They serve good food and every Sunday there is a buffet with fruit, sandwiches, blueberry pancakes and much more. A small paradise an earth.
ZANDZEEBAR | Terschelling
This place is perfect, good atmosphere and the beach is great. What's even better: They have hot tubs or how they call it Dutchtubs. When you enjoy a coffee you will at the same time support a charity, Zandzeebar supports Destino.
RESTAURANT AAN ZEE | Oostvoorne
In the middle of the dunes you will find this beautiful building were everything comes from nature, energy from the wind & sun and they cook on wood. They serve biological dishes but different than you're used to, think seaweed sausages and carrot ice cream. Try their walking dinner where they serve your food at different locations.
TIMBOEKTOE | Wijk aan Zee
A hidden paradise, if you don't mind the big factory across the canal, this is Wijk aan Zee. One of the best surf spots in the Netherlands and a pretty large beach. The laid-back atmosphere, live music and just simple good food makes Timboektoe an ultimate spot for a day at the beach.
BARBAROSSA | Scheveningen
Barbarossa just opened his doors, so definitely worth a visit. With its light colors the place looks really cool and refreshing. Check out the nice chairs on the terrace, ideal for a long sunny day at the beach.
GEORGE No.5 | Zandvoort
Already a well-known hotspot in the city of Amsterdam you can now also enjoy the same delicious food, stylish interior and cool music at the beach of Zandvoort. An ideal place to chill in style, to escape the city and enjoy the breeze..
STRANDPALVILJOEN NOORD | Bergen aan Zee
In the beautiful town of Bergen you will find this beach club, here you can enjoy many nice dishes made with local products. It's an inspiring and relaxed place where you are at the right spot for a cappuccino or a glass of wine. Double fun: It's from the owners of lifestyle brand Sissy Boy so you can do some shopping as well.
BLIJBURG | Amsterdam
Although it's not next to the sea, it feels like a beach, it's not the ocean but the lake IJmeer. A very lively place with many different kind of people, all there to enjoy the sunny days. DJ's will play relaxed Summer music and at a good day you can sit next to the campfire and watch the stars.
ELEMENTS | 's Gravenzande
At Elements they pay special attention to the human being, the animal and the planet. All the food they serve is biological from a grower around the corner (Be-leaf). The style is kind of exotic and as they say themselves; 'you feel like you are in a other country', we agree.
BRIES | Noordwijk
A luxurious atmosphere, you can easily spend your day hanging in some of the good lounge beds and drink a bottle of wine. When you visit Bries at a Sunday go and enjoy 'The Sunday Steakmarket', eat Dutch dikbil, lamb from Texel or a nice piece of tenderloin. Extra nice, on a good sunny day they have a masseur.
PANTA RHEI | Vlissingen
Panta Rhei is all about the music, enjoy live music every Sunday and once every six weeks there is a music quiz. It's located between the boulevard of Vlissingen and the North Sea. Chill and enjoy the view!
ZUIDERDUIN | Westkapelle
This beach club is located at one of the cleanest beaches of the Netherlands and offers a great view, both at the sea and at the dunes of Zeeland. The atmosphere is stylish, a bit more formal. Fish is there speciality but you are also at the right place for a good piece of meat.
ENJOY THE SUMMER
