Best City Beaches in West Amsterdam

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Amsterdam team

If you need a place to catch a wave or just work on your tan, there are a couple of beaches throughout the city. Going to a beach in the middle of the city is certainly one of the coolest things to do in Amsterdam.

If you like to go to a beach with outdoor games and parties, then Strand West beach has you covered. Located at the heart of the city, going to the beach is quite a surreal experience. For those looking for a more traditional experience, Biljburg aan zee would be preferable, one of the most popular as well as the largest beaches in the city.
