Langevelderslag Strand, The Netherlands

When summer comes to mind, what else follows? A beautiful, tall cup of iced tea. Sitting outside with ice cream while enjoying a cool breeze in the shade. And of course, the beach. Langevelderslag Strand is the closest beach and boy is it breathtaking.  So when Sander’s sister asked if we wanted to join her and her friend for a walk on the beach with all our dogs… We couldn’t say no. The unique part of summer here, is that the sun sets around 10pm. So we arranged to meet up around 8:30 pm and stayed until about sunset.

It’s been pretty warm the past few days so Langevelderslag Strand was a balmy 70° and stayed around there.

There are various locations that allow dogs off leash but some areas allow only leashed dogs. So we once we got to the surf, we walked down to where our dogs could run free. In total, we had five wild hounds.

The water is pretty warm so walking along the edge was relaxing to do. There were lots of shells and washed up jellyfish so watch where you walk!

The beaches here are vast, open spaces with little rocky shore. The sand is warm and fine grain and perfect for relaxing or having fun in. We passed several yoga pregnancy circles as well. For a day trip, Langevelderslag Strand is a fantastic spot to visit. There’s a small restaurant to eat at, but since we had already had dinner we walked right by.

The main goal of this trip was to exercise ourselves and our dogs and we hit that goal. What surprised us was Booker. She hated the water but had no issue running in it and following the other dogs into the surf.

    Have to be honest. 3 years living in Amsterdam and we’ve not been to the beach even once!

      There’s always so much to see, it would be easy to forget about the beach!

    […] with us! Haru hasn’t been to the beach yet and I would love to see her swim in the ocean. Booker had such a blast when we went but it’s been far too long since […]
