Feeling the sun on your face, the wind in your hair, and your feet in the sand… Vacation and the beach go hand in hand. But hey, you don’t need to jet off halfway around the globe for a hefty dose of sun, sea, and sand. The Netherlands has plenty of spots where you can top up your Vitamin D and enjoy a stunning view from your beach chair.

What if we told you that you could even sleep on the beach? Nope, no need to book a flight to Bali for that. You can do just that along the Dutch coast. Whether it’s in a safari tent, lodge, or beach cabin, you’ll wake up every morning to the sun rising on the horizon and the sound of waves rolling onto the beach. If that doesn’t scream vacation vibes… So, dig out your swimwear and dust off your flip-flops. This summer, it’s all about building sandcastles on the Dutch coast! We’ve got 5 glamping accommodations lined up where we’d love to spend a night.

1. Sea Lodge in Bloemendaal

Close to the popular Bloemendaal aan Zee and within walking distance of all the cozy beach pavilions, you’ll find these charming sea lodges. They’re the perfect spot to enjoy the last rays of sunshine after a successful beach day. Decorated in beach style, these lodges come with a cozy covered veranda offering breathtaking views of the dunes and the North Sea. Plus, they’re a great starting point for beautiful walks and bike rides to local highlights like Zuid-Kennemerland or IJmuiden.

2. Beach House in Julianadorp aan Zee

At one of the northernmost tips of the Netherlands, you’ll discover these gems with huge windows looking out over the sea. These spacious, detached beach houses on stilts are perfect for a weekend getaway with the family. There’s plenty for everyone to do: try out various water sports, take trips to cities like Hoorn, Alkmaar, or Den Helder, watch seals, or just chill in your beach chair with a good book. With these fully equipped accommodations, you’ll want for nothing during your vacation.

3. Beach Lodge in Renesse

For a complete unwind, a beach lodge on the Zeeland coast is the place to be. The beautiful surroundings, quiet location, and relaxed atmosphere will ensure you can truly relax. The beach lodges, made of wood and furnished with scaffolding wood furniture, offer a real camping feeling but with all the comforts of home. Open the doors to the veranda and enjoy the warm summer evenings to the fullest. Also, the beach café DOK and restaurant ZILT located in the park are worth a visit for a great breakfast or delicious tapas.

4. Beach Cabin in Cadzand

These beach cabins deserve a spot on this list just for their panoramic views alone. Nestled between the beach and the dunes, they are the perfect spot for sun worshippers and active vacationers. Start your day with a walk through the dunes, take a refreshing dip around noon, head out with a picnic basket, and end the day with a lovely glass of wine while watching the sunset from your own designer garden furniture. Plus, Cadzand is close to the Belgian border, so a shopping trip to Antwerp is definitely on the cards.

5. Beach House in The Hague

These accommodations on the beach are located just behind the dunes, near the lively boulevards of Scheveningen and Kijkduin. The park itself is green, expansive, and utterly peaceful. That’s why these beach houses are the ideal place to unwind with the kids. Go shell hunting, play beach volleyball, or build a giant sandcastle: they definitely won’t be bored here. Moreover, the beach houses are just a stone’s throw away from larger cities like The Hague and Rotterdam, so there are plenty of excursion options!
