The Zandvoort beach has a number of beach restaurants that are open all year round. I often like to come to Tijn Akersloot myself. Located on the beach at the edge of the city making it a place with a relaxed atmosphere without the hustle and bustle of the rest of the town. In the winter time, there are many wood fires burning where you can warm up with a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate milk. In the summer the large terrace is open where you can stay until late at night. Watch the sunset and of course you can get a blanket if it gets a bit cooler.
You can come here for breakfast, lunch, dining, basically the whole day.
And do not go home without eating a fish from De Zeemeermin (the Mermaid). De Zeemeermin is a moveable fish market that is greatly appreciated by the locals. Together with 6 other fellow fish markets they even organized the world record of Haringhappen! (take a bite of a herring) In 2015 over 1,500 people ate a herring at the sime time.
When you order a dish and eat it outside on the beach, there are always some gulls looking over your shoulder, waiting for you to drop something. They also like these fish!
Every morning this market is brought to the parking lot at Boulevard Barnaart by a tractor and after dinnertime they leave again. So make sure you are on time!
