At thirty minutes by train from Amsterdam Central Station lies the beach at Zandvoort!
The train goes twice an hour (more often from Haarlem) and brings you straight to the beach within half an hour. While the Netherlands is not famous for its weather, on a sunny day you’ll be impressed by the popularity of the beach.
While you’re in the neighborhood, you can also make a trip to the racing track. Circuit Park Zandvoort is a must-see for racing fanatics, with many races during the weekends and the possibility to step into a Lamborghini or Porsche yourself!
