So close to the busy civilized world, yet so peaceful, wide and untouched. Zandvoort is sandwiched between two beautiful nature reserves: the Zuid-Kennemerland National Park and the Amsterdam Waterleidingduinen. The rugged dune landscape of these areas forms a nice contrast with the centuries old estates with manor houses and park-like gardens in the dune forests and the wide, golden-yellow beaches along the North Sea coast. From the highest dune tops you have a fascinating view over a varied landscape with forests, lakes, drifting dunes, moist dune valleys, variegated flower fields and the North Sea. Highly recommended for nature lovers!
