# 2 Things to do this weekend in the Netherlands: Relax at the beach

25-degree weather is beach weather, let’s enjoy it while it lasts! Most tourists don’t know this, but the Netherlands has some great beaches. The busiest beach is Scheveningen beach in Zuid-Holland, a large beach with a pier, restaurants and shops. For a more natural and secluded beach, travel to Berkenbosch beach in Zeeland, a 2-hour drive away from Amsterdam. Take a look at more beaches to enjoy in the Netherlands here.

# 4 Pro tip for this weekend: Explore nature in the Netherlands

The Netherlands is home to breathtaking national parks, perfect for exploring and escaping city life. Tilburg is often overlooked by tourists but has some beautiful parks, perfect for this weekend’s weather. Oude Warande park is the perfect park for a sunny day and has walking paths shaped like a star and spaces for picnics. Take a look at more nature to explore in Tilburg here.

#5 Canal Boat Tour

A canal boat tour is a classic in the Netherlands. If you haven’t gone on one, this weekend’s weather makes it the perfect time to try it out. These usually also offer alcoholic drinks and snacks, making it the perfect afternoon activity. We recommend “The Hague Boat”, where you can either book a private tour if you’re in a large group or purchase tickets to a scheduled boat tour.
