The sea is located from the capital of the Netherlands just 30 minutes away by bus, so a beach holiday here is a very common thing. Tourists come here not only to relax on the coast, but also to get acquainted with the cultural peculiarities of the city. There are really a huge number of attractions in Amsterdam - we can say that the whole city is a huge attraction. Old beautiful buildings, unique museums and European streets, the beaches of Amsterdam - all this leaves a wonderful impression. In the suburbs of Amsterdam, you can have a good rest and gain strength for the year ahead.
The best sandy beaches in Amsterdam are Blijburg aan Zee and Strand West. Both of these beaches are quite large - they stretch for 5-6 km, but even so, they are often packed to capacity. Strand West Beach has appeared recently, but has already become quite popular. Locals come here on weekends, and guests of the city spend whole weeks here. A beautiful view of the Ay river opens from here. In addition to the beautiful view, the beach has a number of pleasant surprises for vacationers:
- rest in a hammock or on a round soft pillow, which are scattered throughout the beach;
- small bars and restaurants where you can have a snack and cool off a little after a hot day;
- playgrounds for beach volleyball and tennis - here you won't get bored;
- playgrounds for little vacationers and much more.
The changing cabins are free here, as is the use of the toilet, but you will have to pay a small amount of money to pay for the entrance to the beach..
Paphos beach Blijburg aan Zee
On the Blijburg aan Zee beach, the atmosphere can be called bohemian, so most often visiting vacationers prefer it. This beach is located on the east side of the complex of islands called Iburg. Its dimensions are not so large - only 250 meters long and 40 meters wide, but there are almost never too many tourists here. It is noteworthy that in the evening campfires are often arranged here and national songs are sung, as well as small festivals are held with the participation of local and foreign dance and music groups. Visiting DJs create an almost festive atmosphere, forcing vacationers to start dancing - night discos on the beaches of Blijburg aan Zee are commonplace. This beach is well suited if you have hot young blood and want not only to relax on the beach, but also to gain unforgettable impressions in a new country. It is very easy to get here - from the Central Station towards the beach there is a tram number 26, which will take you clearly to your destination..
