• Take the train from Amsterdam Central Station to Zandvoort aan Zee. Walk to Zilt at Sea, where you can rent bikes. See our cycle route for a useful step by step guide.
  • Cycle along the boulevard to one of the many beach clubs and enjoy a drink, chill out, or take a refreshing dip in the ocean if the weather allows it. Spend some time shopping at the antique and jewellery boutiques, trendy clothes stores and, of course, surf shops.
  • Follow the road along the boulevard and through the dunes. Racing enthusiasts shouldn’t miss the Circuit Park Zandvoort, nestled amid the dunes. With a bit of luck, you’ll see highland cattle and other wild animals.

  • When you arrive at Zuid-Kennemerland National Park, you can leave your bike at the end and go for a walk to enjoy the distinctive dune landscape of the Dutch coast.
  • Visit the Duin & Kruidberg estate, just to have a look at the beautiful building, or to pause for a coffee or lunch. On your way back, you will cycle along the ruin of Brederode, a castle from the 13th century, and dune pavilion De Uitkijk, where you are rewarded by a fantastic view across the dunes.
  • Stop for a break at Kraantje Lek before you head back to Zandvoort. And if you’re not quite ready to come back to Amsterdam, extend your visit with an overnight stay.
