In 2015 the city beach of Amsterdam first opened its doors! This is a place where you can spent some quality time with friends during summer, as well as during winter. Blijburg aan Zee is known as a ‘cultural beach idyll’. Blijburg is the place where you can feel totally free while swimming, playing beach-soccer, eat food, and drink lovely wines. When it’s cold, this is also the place where you can get warm by the fire place. Besides the amazing atmosphere, this city beach also offers you a variety of cultural activities. Often there are live music, poetry, and storytelling performances.
Blijburg aan Zee’s restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes for the perfect dinner, lunch, brunch, or breakfast. This restaurant especially thought of vegetarians; the menu offers them a lot of choices. The chef in the kitchen states that she uses local produce, sustainable fish, and free range meat as much as possible. Here you can expect nothing less than creative food made with love.
Another city beach in Amsterdam is Strand Zuid.
