Check the website for the latest happenings, which may be anything from food festivals to concerts. Even without something specific going on, the area merits a visit, with many restaurants and bars, plus a beach annex next to the canal. Children can enjoy the playground and sandpit while the adults relax on the benches.

  • A great place to grab something to eat and have a meal. We shared a vegetable festival platter and it was amazing! Also a good option for vegans/vegetarians. The atmosphere is also great, with a DJ playing music and loads of picnic tables outside perfect for a summer night out.
  • Roest is a nice place to go in a sunny day in Amsterdam. Has a sandy terrace facing the canal that gives you a false feeling of being at the beach. The bar have a good energy and with an alternative decoration style. I really like it because is very local where you wont see a lot of tourists.
  • Big city beach, extended selection of drinks. Cool industrial place with a good touch of hippie. On a sunny day, great with kids!
  • Cool place with nice music. A good spot for a drink and food. The snacks are not so good... In summer it is so nice to lay in the sand next to the canal, which people jump into for a swim!
  • One of the best place to have a drink or food or just chill with friends in Amsterdam. There is a big outside area where you feel like at the beach. Food is also great. My favorites : a bottle Woodstock and a flammekueche.
