About these ratings

You probably knew about Amsterdam's canals but what about its beach? Just about 15 miles west of the city center is a place called Zandvoort, a strip of sand that sidles the North Sea. Experts say Zandvoort is at its best in the summertime — and even then, it's a bit "brash and brassy" in Frommer's words. In the summertime, you can take a 30-minute train ride directly from Amsterdam's Centraal station; during other seasons, you'll need to transfer.
