Zandvoort - the tranquil beaches of the North Sea within reach
Zandvoort, literally "the gate of the sands", is a small Dutch municipality located about twenty kilometres west of Amsterdam. A famous seaside resort, the town has several kilometres of fine sandy beaches that you will have an opportunity to discover while on a family holiday in Zandvoort.
During your holiday in Zandvoort, you can stay in a very comfortable 4-star hotel with sea view from all rooms or in small detached cottages at the heart of the sand dunes. A stone's throw away are the beaches of the North Sea, where you can swim and take part in water sports such as sand yachting, surfing or kite flying, or simply laze about on the beach.
For those who prefer the calm of the swimming pool, the Zandvoort water park offers a long, 25-metre pool for swimming lengths, a wave pool, whirlpool, crazy rivers and slides, all within an exotic tropical environment!
With its many different activities, a weekend in Zandvoort is suitable for families with children, even toddlers. They can enjoy the Zandvoort leisure park and its many themed play areas. At the children's farm, they can come face to face with lovely little animals. The Kids Haven activity will see them taking command of a boat where you, mammy and daddy, are the sailors! It's a very amusing family activity.
Apart from its superb beaches at the North Sea, Zandvoort is teeming with diverse activities. While on holiday with children in Zandvoort, why not start by visiting the town centre and the town's racing circuit where different events are organised each week? You can also make the most of your holiday in the Netherlands by going to Amsterdam and visiting the town's main such as the Van Gogh museum and the Anne Frank House. You could also take a boat tour of Amsterdam's canals.
