Hotel for Zandvoort


Zandvoort and the gay beach

The gay beach is located at the far south side of Zandvoort. When you walk out of the train station walk to the boulevard and go to the left. After a 25 minute walk you'll pass the last beach club at the Boulevard Paulus Lot, walk up the beach, pass beach club Havana and continu for another 15 minutes.

From there it's another 15 minutes walk to the nudebeach area. You know when you have reached the gay part of the nude beach automatically....The gaybeach is at beachclub Eldorado. Clothing is optional!

At the end of a sunny day, the crowd moves back from Eldorado to beach club Havana, to have sunset dinner there.

A day at the beach

It is well known for its racing circuit, the boulevard and the casino, but also for the forested dunes and lovely beaches. Main reason to go there is the beach, which is a popular hangout for the Amsterdam gay scene during Summer.

Bloemendaal aan Zee

5 km north of Zandvoort, you'll find another popular beach resort: Bloemendaal aan Zee. This is the more trendy area, which huge and chique beach clubs like Bloomingdale, De Kust and De Republiek. Here DJ's play all dag &night. This area is a bit more showing off, for both a straight and gay public.

How to get to Zandvoort?

Go by train directly from Amsterdam CS, it will take you only 30 minutes via Haarlem. Don't come by car on a hot summer day, because you're not the only one who wants to spend a day at sea. On nice summer days traffic jams around Zandvoort are huge as there are only two major routes leading to this village in the dunes. And parking space for cars is very rare and if available, very expensive!
