Plenty of people on the beach the 1st week of September. Sand was white, water tempting and still at a good temperature. Sun still requiring screen and plenty of shells on the beach. One can walk for miles at the waters edge. We loved it....More

Walk a bit away from the entrance and you'll have plenty of space. Very friendly beach area. Not so much focussed on looks and appearances. Very few hipsters compared to Bergen or Zandvoort. Good places to eat as well.
