Escaping the city bustle, you might want to try this one. Located on the artificial beach of Amsterdam Ijburg, has a lot of parking space and is not far from Tram 26 which connects to Central Station. Food is not really special but nothing to complain. I had the day special, roasted duck with pumpkin gnocchi. The meat was of... More

Besides the sunny terrace and remote location, this gem offers best breakfast choice for relaxing moments. Premium coffee quality and a complete snack selection suits perfect to a trip out to the sandbank of Lijburg. It would be helpful to see a sign with the restaurant name at the crossing at front. First time visitors are confused if this building... More

I really don't understand why restaurants prefer to take the risk of bad reviews over earning some more euros. This place is in my top 3 of depravities. The menu looks very eco-friendly with a lot of organic and locally sourced products. However, when ordering a tap water, because I didn't feel like coke or other sweet stuff, the waitress... More

Recently visited Blijburg aan zee, and was amazed how picturesque and clean it was. A gorgeous little hideaway tucked away at the end of IJburg, where you can surf, sail, swim and even play beach volleyball if you want too. There's a skate park for the kids on the walk up to the beach and sand dunes, making it a... More

Sunny day in september we went to the beach and stop by this place around 5pm to take aperitivo ! The sangria is yummy and not too sweet, and the "bitterballen" was great, the croquettes of cheese and rockets was really the best croquettes I has. Staff were friendly. The place is stunning. It was like I was in a... More

The best beach location of Amsterdam is Blijburg. The atmosphere is very good. Nice view, nice music (often live music). The food is basic. They offer a very good burger with good fries. All food is biological. The staff is friendly but not very well organized. If you go to this place, then dont expect to be served quickly. If... More

Not the first urban beach I've been to, but definitely the best. I suppose if you take an urban beach and prefix it with "ganja-friendly", you've just made it the best urban beach in the world. The beach is man-made and not very large. You can lay out comfortably if you come during the hottest part of summer. Although some... More

Blijburg is unique. Whenever I have taken friends from overseas here they are amazed. It has an atmosphere that is unique in The Netherlands. It is relaxed, friendly, some would say alternative. You will only find places like this in Goa or Thailand. Blijburg is a collection of containers, recycled materials, tents, pavilions all built on a beach that was... More
