Beach Bar
“The last beach bar in the row but worth the walk and there is no dress code. You can dance inside with ravers or sit outside around the campfire and swap traveller’s tales. From techno to African music and visitors from all over the world, the atmosphere at Woodstock is open and friendly. 30 minutes on the bicycle and a unique experience. Open until the end of September”

“Haarlem is famous for its proximity to the beautiful Dutch coast. Bloemendaal aan Zee is one of the beaches that is often visited by locals, not only on summer days but also on stormy days to watches the savage sea create some impressive waves. When the weather is more inviting this beach is also perfect for running.”
