Traveller review of Callantsoog Beach from Trip Advisor: “If you want to go by car, I suggest you’ll go up Noord Holland to a place called Callantsoog. It’s a good 1 hour’s drive north from Amstelveen and beaches are fantastic there. Just cross the dunes (short walk) and you’ll be fine. I prefer that place far to the jampacked locations nearer to Amsterdam.”
