The best tips for a carefree beach day in the Netherlands

With summer and tropical temperatures approaching, everyone starts planning to go to the beach again. Make a day by the sea unforgettable or avoid traffic jams by being on the beach with an overnight stay before the first rays of sunshine show themselves. In this article, we share 6 tips for a perfect beach day!

Tip 1: Visit a beach festival

The wonderful sea breeze and the soft sand make the beach the ideal location for a summer party with Dutch top artists. On Saturday, September 2, you can sing and dance along during the Largest Summer Party in the Netherlands. A big summer beach party with, among others, Guus Meeuwis, Susan & Freek and Kris Kross Amsterdam. All the artists are really looking forward to this special evening. Book an overnight stay at Inntel Hotels Den Haag Marina Beach including tickets for this festival and don’t miss out on the spectacle.

If you haven’t been to a festival for a long time, you probably can’t wait to dance with your friends for hours again. Prepare yourself well and train the muscles of your legs before the party starts. No better excuse to practice those dance moves.

Tip 2: Store valuables

In your beach bag, a bottle of sunscreen should of course not be missing. Protect your skin with an appropriate factor. The usage has many advantages: it reduces the chances of burning, skin cancer and makes your radiant skin look even younger. The packaging of an empty bottle of sunscreen can also come in very handy. Take it to the beach to safely store small valuables such as your keys and some coins. This way you can take a cooling dip in the salty seawater without any worries.

Tip 3: Keep your phone safe

In addition to these valuables, your phone can also use some protection against sand. Take a lockable plastic bag to the beach to store your phone. At the end of the day, you can easily use this bag to take wet swimwear back to your hotel room. Alternatively, leave your phone at home, to discover how that feels.

Tip 4: Enjoy the sun sand-free

Take a fitted sheet to the beach and place it over your towel with a heavy object in each corner. With this, you can build a wall so that your towel remains sand-free and you can enjoy the sun carefree 😉

Tip 5: Book an overnight stay at the beach

Enjoy a wonderful beach day even longer and watch the sun sink into the sea with an overnight stay at Inntel Hotels Den Haag Marina Beach. The building has been designed to bring the beach feeling ‘inside’. It reflects the ‘sails’ of a ship and you can see surfboard mirrors and themed wallpaper in the rooms of the hotel. With the location on the harbour of Scheveningen, the rooms offer a view of the city of The Hague and/or the beach. From the hotel, you can easily reach the beach to take a quick dip in the sea in the morning or evening. In addition, you can easily walk along the boulevard to the Pier where the bustling area with restaurants and beach bars can be found.

Tip 6: Combine a city trip with a visit to one of the city beaches

The other Inntel Hotels also have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the sun’s rays. For example, take a seat for breakfast, lunch or dinner on the terrace at one of the Inntel Hotels. Still want to enjoy a day at the beach? From Amsterdam, you can easily reach Zandvoort aan Zee, but did you know that many cities in the Netherlands also have very cosy city beaches in summer…? How about, for example, city beach SOIA on the water in Utrecht or city beach PLEQ in bustling Eindhoven. Rotterdam is near Hoek van Holland where you can also enjoy a carefree day at the beach.
