Netherlands (North Sea)
Only 15 minutes out of Amsterdam via train you will find the end of the line amongst the sand dunes. Wide expanses and the cool breezes assure comfort even in the summer. This is the day trip destination during the popular summer months.
The long line of restaurants and open patio bars cater to the sun worshipers.
Portable seafood stands also can be found where people collect.
If you are touring early enough in the spring the crocus are just starting to reach out for the sun's bright rays.
The central square in Zaandvort is a comfortable plaza and an easy walk to stores and restaurants. Specialty stores abound.
