Parks and beaches

In summer Amsterdam has some city beaches. But the real one is not far away. By a direct train from Central Station you reach the coast at Zandvoort in 30 minutes. The park to go during day time on sunny days is the Rose Garden at the Vondelpark (see below). A bit further away is Nieuwe Meer, where also clothing optional sunbathing is possible.

  • 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 more...
