You wouldn't say so, but YES we do have sun in Amsterdam and we do have beaches! City beaches, but who cares it's as much fun. I bet we got your attention now... Here we go!
1) ROEST. Tucked away in the east side of Amsterdam you find this creative hotspot where you can dance, enjoy punch and of course - lay on the beach! Roest (meaning ''rust'' in Dutch) has an industrial look and feel and hosts a unique historical building with a bar and a nice terrace with picnic benches. It's the perfect setting to spend a relaxt day or to catch the last sun in the evening. Easy to reach by bike and boat.
2) PLLEK. After 15 minutes on the (free) ferry from Amsterdam Central you reach NDSM werf, the North part of the city. The raw, industrial look of this area was incorporated by Pllek as the venue is build with containers. The place is located at the IJ and has a cozy beach (see picture above).
3) BLIJBURG. It's a little further than the beaches above (35 mins by public transport from CS), but it's the biggest one as well! So yes, it's worth it if you are into a nice match of beach ball. In the bohemian vibe of the restaurant you can have nice food and drinks as well.
