Ice Cream In Zandvoort

Zandvoort offers a wealth of opportunity for eating ice cream - ideal for adults and children alike on those warm, sunny days. In Zandvoort you can find ice cream parlours and ice cream kiosks down in the village but even if you are on the beach you don't miss out .... the beach pavilions all sell ice cream and there are also ice cream vendors who drive up the beach on sunny days, usually in a tractor towing a small ice cream cart behind. It's a wonderful sight! Here's a photo of one we took on Zandvoort's south beach (naturist beach section).

There is one particular ice cream parlour in Haltestraat which we always call in at when we are in Zandvoort. It's called "San Remo" and the Italian couple who run it are total ice cream enthusiasts who make their own ice cream including a very special 'secret recipe' which they call "Dolce Vita". It's a chocolate ice cream but with a difference - delicious!

You can just grab an ice cream cone or ice cream tub as a take-away treat or you can sit down inside the parlour and enjoy a fabulous ice cream sundae at your leisure - like the one in the photo that we shared!

If you're an ice cream sundae fan, it's a place not to miss.

Zandvoort Webcams

If you want to see what the weather is like in Zandvoort you can always try the Zandvoort Webcams which are now linked from our website. You can view different parts of the beach and coastline or the main boulevard or even catch a glimpse of the internationally famous Zandvoort racetrack or Circuit Zandvoort as it's locally known. The racetrack brings many racing car fans to Zandvoort each year of course, as it has done since the 1930's and although F1 races no longer take place there, it is still a popular venue for F3 racing. A detailed history of the Circuit Zandvoort is available on Wikipedia.
