Amsterdam Beach Tour

Bus line 80 is the simple and most comfortable way to travel from Amsterdam via Haarlem to the beach of Zandvoort. No traffic jams, no looking for a parking space. Every 15 minutes a bus leaves from the Elandsgracht in Amsterdam to the beach.

Visit Haarlem and Zandvoort, the beach of Amsterdam

With more than enough historical sights, cultural attractions and hidden tiny courts crammed into a relatively small city, a visit to Haarlem makes for a brilliant day trip from Amsterdam. There’s plenty to keep you entertained - including river cruises, flower markets and more - and thanks to its compact size, it’s easy to get a good introduction to the city even if you only have one day to explore it.

In Zandvoort, you can enjoy the beautiful wide sandy beach by the North Sea or the beautiful views from the kilometres long promenade. Zandvoort is one of the oldest seaside resorts in the Netherlands: in 1828, the first bathhouse was put into use. Numerous celebrities visited Zandvoort and it is still one of the most popular beaches in the region.

With bus line 80 – the Amsterdam Beach Line – you will not just travel to the beach. It is also worthwhile to go for a walk or a bike ride in the Dutch dunes, to visit the Circuit Park Zandvoort or to see the historic city of Haarlem.

New Water Supply Dunes (line 80)

The Amsterdam Water Supply Dunes is a dune area between Zandvoort and Noordwijk, which has been set up for the extraction of drinking water for the city of Amsterdam; fifty million cubic metres of drinking water flow through this 3400-hectare area every year. In this dune area, exclusively intended for hikers, you can enjoy nature and tranquillity. You can wander off the beaten track, which is fun when you're with children. If you pay close attention, you may spot fallow deer.

IJmuiden (line 382 from Amsterdam Sloterdijk and 385 from Haarlem)

IJmuiden, a place of raw beauty: rugged beaches where you can enjoy wind and water sports, wide dunes hiding the bunkers of the past, and an impressive lock complex with boats and ships. IJmuiden is cool, especially in stormy weather.
Tip: Take a look at Fort IJmuiden (Sundays only). This fort is half submerged in the mouth of the North Sea Canal. The Sea and Harbour Museum is definitely also worth a visit for anyone interested in the history and development of the North Sea Canal and IJmuiden, fisheries,
and maritime activities.

SnowWorld Amsterdam (line 382)

Winter in the Netherlands? That is what you will find at SnowWorld Amsterdam! Here you can ski and snowboard in real snow almost all year round. Three lifts and two slopes, a fun park, two restaurants and après-ski... all at approx. 20 minutes from Amsterdam. The feeling of a skiing holiday for a moment. Lovely!
You can rent equipment here, book lessons or of course go skiing or snowboarding by yourself. It's up to you.

NP South Kennemerland (line 81)

National Park South Kennemerland is one of the largest nature reserves in the Netherlands. Walking or cycling through the dunes, you pass lakes, woods, plains and viewpoints.

A beautiful piece of nature where you enjoy peace and quiet and space.
