The North Sea beach of Schiermonnikoog is amongst the broadest in Europe, and the cleanest in the Netherlands. Zandvoort is another extremely popular beach in Holland. Especially among families. The beach has plenty room for all sorts of activities. Terschelling has a 30km-long, clean sandy beach, giving you a good chance to find a nice, private spot. With Amsterdam being a mayor city and the nearest beach being about 45 minutes away, someone came up with the clever idea of creating a city beach. In the South of Amsterdam (behind the Rai Event Center) you will find Strand Zuid. Vlieland is a calm island that hosts a village, forest areas, beautiful dunes full of nature and a wide beach that’s great for seal spotting. Ameland Beach is also located on the Wadden Islands. Like Texel Beach, Ameland Beach is made up of sand dunes, green shrubbery and quaint beach houses. Egmond aan Zee is known for being the number on family beach in Holland.
