Surroundings

This is staying at the seaside

Unwind at the beach with Haarlem and Amsterdam just around the corner. Enjoy endless beach walks and bike rides through the famous Kenner dunes. Start your day off with yoga, or jump on your surf board and ride the waves. With the best beach bars around the corner.


Activities

Be it summer or winter: there’s always something to do here! You can take advantage of the wind and waves and visit our neighbours at Surfana to sign up for a surfing class, or enjoy the calm in the Nationalpark Zuid-Kennemerland; a unique dune park between the coast and Haarlem with many trails to hike or bike. Have a need for speed? Within 5 minutes you can find yourself on the race tracks Zandvoort Circuit.

By the way; you can rent bikes from us.


Especially for dogs

Dogs are always welcome in our apartments and on the beach. They are free to be off leash the entire year at the dog beach of Parnassia, a 10 minute walk away: also during high season! September 15th to May 15th your dog is also free to go for an off leash run on our beach. All beach pavilions allow on-leash dogs.


Visits

Within 15 minutes you will be in the heart of Haarlem, city of formidable restaurants, unique boutiques and great art, like the Frans Hals Museum and the Museum Van de Geest. Or enjoy a day in Amsterdam, only 30 minutes away by car.

Lucky us, The Netherlands is a rather small country, which gives plenty of alternatives for day-trips. Within 1 hour ride you can discover the city of the Dutch Parliament, The Hague, as well as the “little Amsterdam” known as Utrecht and the home to the biggest European port, Rotterdam.

Looking to visit then famous Dutch windmills? Discover Zaanse Schans, a little gem nearby Amsterdam where historic windmills and distinctive wooden houses were relocated to recreate the look of a 18th century village: definitely a must visit.


Dining

We are surrounded by the best beach cafe’s of the Netherlands. Enjoy Asian, Italian, BBQ and vegan, just around the corner - or even downstairs! In the same building as Poort Beach, Renato’s serves Italian cuisine every day from 12:00 until 22:00. Enjoy a delicious homemade pasta, a traditional Italian pizza or simply coffee and cake on their huge terrace with sea view. Just willing to relax in your own apartment? No worries, you can get take away, too.

You can also enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner at sea throughout all the seasons next door at San Blas and Republiek: seven days a week (including the winter!). Feel like a high-end culinary evening? Enjoy Michelin-quality at de Bokkedoorns in Overveen. It’s up to you, because of course staying in and enjoy cooking in your own luxurious kitchen is a great option as well!


Fun for kids

Swimming, looking for shells or flying a kite: the beach offers hours of fun! Kids of 6 years and up can enjoy surfing activity at our downstairs neighbors Surfana: single classes or a week-long program. Or go for a jump in the trampoline park around the corner, open all summer long until sun down. Alternatively, a 20 minutes ride will take you to Linnaeushof, Europe’s biggest playground. With over 350 play sets and attractions, your kiddos will only have to decide whether to climb up a pirate’s nest, sail in a pedal boat or hit the ball at the midget gold track.

You can also enjoy a day trip to Scheveningen visiting its famous aquarium, the Sea Life, or at Legoland, immersing yourself in the most colourful LEGO indoor playground. Rather looking for a vacation park? During high season, children are welcome by the animation team across the street at vacation park Qurius.
