Just enjoy the moment! Swim, suntan, visit a beach club (a place where you are totally welcome in your swimming pants and bikini)…


…or a restaurant (no swimwear, yet no bow ties).

Our top pick for lunch and evening drinks is Club Nautique

Walk on the promenade to Bloemendaal aan Zee (a less touristic part of the beach) and taste some fresh fish.


Rent a bike and explore the dunes in National park Zuid-Kennemerland.
