Zandvoort's Dunes

The dunes in The Netherlands are a common feature of the landscape and Zandvoort is no exception. Here is a photograph of Zandvoort's dunes - taken behind the beach to the South of Zandvoort.

Although the dunes appear empty in this picture, they are in fact abundant with flora, fauna, bird and animal life. Birds include crossbills and sea eagles.

The 2 main areas of dunes in Zandvoort are called the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen to the South and the Zuid-Kennemerland National to the North.
