We took a direct train from Amsterdam Centraal here and hired 2 bikes for 30 euro. Cycled to Haarlem via a couple of lovely little towns (brilliant toasties at a little place next to the station in Overgreen? spelling?) looked round the beautiful city of Haaarlem and then cycled back through the national park. It was a stunning day -... More

Stopped off for a couple of hours on the way back to the ferry. Clean, plenty of places to eat, long walk down to the beach & back,car parking looks limited, hundreds of spaces for bikes, scooters, motorcycles. Will be looking in on next visit to Holland

A nice town, very clean and tidy, good range of shops and supermarkets, very light traffic with a great campsite at the far end of town past the racing circuit.

Many people know Zandvoort as an overcrowded beach with loads of German tourists and little charm. I will tell you that if you just turn a corner or take a walk, there is a different Zandvoort to discover. Here is my top 3, in random order 1. Stroll through the small but charming old fisherman town. The 19th century grand... More

Hollands best kept secret. It's a gem of a place. Excellent cycling only 40 miles from the hook so an easy ride. We did a few days there. Absolutely heading back and if you had glorious sunshine it would be an ideal summers break also. Good shopping and easy links to Haarlem and dam.

Zandvoort is the closest beach to Amsterdam. It is a very beautiful beach to go for a walk, or to spend your day in one of the amazing beach bars that are located there. It is also a very nice location for windsurfing and kitesurfing when its windy, and for surfing when there are waves. However, the sea is brown... More

There's so much to see in a small place , I just love the relaxed kind of surfer boy/girl atmosphere , on a hot day it can't be beat for a long weekend , a nice walk along the lovely sandy beach and a drink from one of the many beach bars/ restaurants there are makes the place irresistible ,...

Great little holiday resort and base for exploring the area. See the review of Hotel Anna in the resort. It has all the amenities including good restaurants and Casino.

We cycled from Haarlam to Bloemendaal and stopped at the Endpoint cafe and along the coast to Zandvoort. It's a great way to see the coast. Lots of families sunbathing, paddle boarding and playing. Stopped at an outstanding cheeseshop on the way back, Tromp Kaashuis in Aerdenhout. It's been there since 1961 and the man running it was very helpful... More
