Hiking: Exploring dunes on foot is the best way to experience the sandy Dutch coast or as we say: the Dutch dunes. The best area to go hiking: Amsterdam Watersupply Dunes (AWD). Enjoy magnificent views, feel the wind blow, spot wild deer and watch some tiny colourful wild plants flower. HOW TO GET THERE: You can go on your own hike by taking bus 80 from Amsterdam to Zandvoort (busstop Waterleidingduinen), or make a good walk on paths in National Park Zuid-Kennemerland. Start your walk at the train station of Overveen, and walk to the dunes (about 15 minutes to get there).

All possibilities to get to the dunes by public transport you can find here (at bottom of page).
