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 best park to hang out a bit in during the day. A busy cruising spot at night is the Rozentuin (Rose Garden) in the middle of the park (AYOR).
