It gets busy on the beaches early on Saturday afternoon. Due to the beautiful beach weather, the parking spaces in Scheveningen, Zandvoort, Castricum aan Zee, Noordwijk aan Zee and at Maasvlakte beach are full. There are traffic jams on the roads to Scheveningen and the Zeeland coast, the ANWB reports.
The traffic jams are further on the A4 from the Belgian border, on the A58 and N59 from North Brabant and on the N57 from Rotterdam. There are some delays on the roads around Zandvoort.
“You can temporarily no longer come to the beach by car,” reports the municipality of Castricum, pointing to a free shuttle bus between Castricum station and the beach. The bus runs twice an hour. The last bus leaves from Castricum aan Zee at 7:00 PM.
Free beach transport is also offered in Noordwijk. “Many people have already come to Noordwijk for a wonderful day at the beach,” the municipality tweeted. “Our parking spaces are full. Our proposal: come by bike or public transport, or use the free Beach Shuttle.”
The seaport police report that all roads to the Maasvlakte beach are closed due to the crowds. On Twitter, the police ask to be “nice” to the traffic controllers. “They are also hot.”
