Hi passengers ! 
Haarlem Video Pictures presents today this podcast produced in july 2008 with shots made on the beach of Zandvoort in the Netherlands, i added the song ''Moses'' performed by Coldplay giving a melancolic tempo to this holiday movie. 
In 2015 Zandvoort is very busy during the summer, then for the ones who cannot access the beach, there is another destination in the heart of Amsterdam : The city beaches !

It is a huge trend in European cities: the city beach. After enjoying hectic urban life, these ‘beaches’ allow you to relax and enjoy without having to travel to the coast. We have found the best city beaches in Holland for you. 
The 4 best city beaches

Enjoy the sun the chic way! This luxury city beach offers 2000 square metres of enjoyment for those who love lounging, good cocktails and great food. Relax on a lounge chair or compete in a game of beach volleyball. Unfortunately you cannot swim at Strandzuid so this is the ultimate location for enjoying the sun! Address: Strandzuid. Europaplein 22, Amsterdam.
2. Amsterdam: Strand West 
The most relaxed city beach in Amsterdam. With its view of the IJ river and a relaxed atmosphere, this is the perfect city beach if you want to relax in care-free surroundings.

Stavangerweg 900, Amsterdam.
