What is it?

The Nieuwe Meer / De Oeverlanden is a recreational area at a small lake just outside the city centre of Amsterdam. In summer you can bathe in the sun and swim in the lake.

On the other side of the bicycle path there is the clothing optional area. Here naked sunbathing is allowed. The small forest is the biggest cruising area in Amsterdam. 24x7 cruising here. Park your car at the nearby official car parks.

When cruising at night be very careful. Also make sure to stay in the area. Nudity outside the cruising area is fined.

Uit de nieuwsbrief van stadsdeel Nieuw-West:

Handhavingsactie ‘cruisen’ op de Oeverlanden

Woensdag 15 april hebben handhavers op de Oeverlanden, in het Jaagpadbos en omgeving, een handhavingsactie gehouden met als doel het tegengaan van cruisen buiten het cruisegebied. Dit resulteerde in zes parkeerbonnen, zes waarschuwingen voor cruisen buiten het cruisegebied en één proces-verbaal in verband met de identificatieplicht.

Love this cruising area, it's big and full of places where you can go semi-private. Some things I like to note,

- during weekends visitors are mainly gay bottoms, could be frustrating if you're looking for a manly top

- like all cruising area's you have a group of regulars, mainly bottom, wearing tracksuits or track pants. (easy off and on to the next)

- avoid the guys trying to hide their faces with caps or hoodies, usually they are very old, ugly and/or sick

- don't just walk around, nothing will happen this way. See a guy you're interested in? Make it clear and be proactive!

- come by car or bike, the area is not within walking distances.

- only cruise in the designated cruising area, the area to your left if you stand facing away from the BP gas station (opposite on the road). Police will give you fines (85 or up) if you go outside this area!

- during daytime the area is mainly used as a nude recreation area for older gay men, there's not much action going on.

- best times for sex are between 7pm - 4am and 6am - 9am

Great cruising area with all types and ages. Good mixture between tops and bottoms as opposed to Vondelpark where 90% is bottom.

Best times to go for casual sex is between sunset and 1am, during hotter nights it goes on till 3am. Even when it's colder (12C) there is still a lot of action till midnight.

Entrance is opposite to BP station, traveling to there by bike or car is a must.

Ik kom hier met enige regelmaat en ben altijd tevreden als ik vertrek. Ik heb zelfs een facebook groep opgericht voor iedereen die interesse heeft. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1374855432753615/

Dear Anonymous 2 days ago
From my personal experiences, this place is on the whole quite safe (there were some incidents though every now & then). I would however suggest not carrying any valuables or cash with you when you go there. The best time is whenever it is rather warm & dry from june until september. Have fun!!!

How safe it is for tourists searching fun in the night? And also, is there any "hot season" to go?

@ a mom
There are so many places for families and children, so why not stay away from this very small area which is so popular for adult men.
(I think the Stadsdeel made a huge mistake by developing the wrong part of De Oeverlanden as a family area with beaches. They should have developed the area which is used by men now. And the current family area should be left as it was before the renovation. This way the families would not have to cross the (naked/cruising) men area. But families can still use the bike path north of the cruising area.)
A (former?) gay friendly city needs some remote places for men to cruise and be naked.

And please keep in mind a lot of in-the-closet-men who are afraid to go to gay bars only have these cruising places to meet other men.
