Zandvoort Holland Vacation

Sweet Homes & Cars at the Sea

I just returned form a two week vacation to North Holland and boy did I like the town, area and people there!

Zandvoort is a major beach resort some 30 miles off of Amsterdam with neat little vacation houses, a small but attractive town center and a former forumla 1 race track where you can actually buy a program to ride some of the hottest cars around course for the entire day for some €350.

The beach is packed at high seasons and sundays but stretches many miles so there is always a less occupied part to be found. Especially by bicycles that most apartment owners throw in for free when renting a vacation apartment or house there. Biking through the dunes is an adventure in itself and we certainly won't forget this exciting landscape and relaxing exercise which peaked in finding the most wonderful beach there.

Having fresh fish for almost every meal of the day, finally dropping some pounds by jogging along the beach every morning and enjoying Amsterdam and some other sights was absolutely worth the trip.
