Overveen, Outside Amsterdam

To the beach and the city and back again

The pretty village of Overveen has the one of the best locations in the whole of the Netherlands - cycling distance from dune-backed sandy beaches on the North Sea coast, close to the city of Haarlem, and also just a 20-minute train ride from Amsterdam Central Station. Play on the beach at Zandvoort and Bloemendaal in the summer, eat out in relaxed cafes with play spaces and great food, and explore Haarlem's many ice cream shops.
