Pllek! The hipster beach of Amsterdam

Pllek! The hipster beach of Amsterdam

Yes it’s true! Besides: Romantic canals, a thousand music bars and cafés, hip ‘galleries and clubs on the tops of tall towers’ and smart public parks, Amsterdam now also has an impressive little beach!

Tucked away along the banks of the IJ on the überhip Noord side of Amsterdam. To get to Pllek Amsterdam you take the ferry from central station and from there it’s a short 1 minute walk. From the outside you’d never imagine there was a beach, since Pllek Amsterdam is walled of by rugged old shipping containers. This provides an excellent shelter from wind-shear though, making the beach all the more enjoyable and relaxed.


The design of the pace is very unique  and cool, with a large indoor area with huge windows and fireplaces that provide a very cozy atmosphere in wintertime, while the beach itself if littered with old wooden blocks and creates. Combined with lot’s of fatboys and pillows this makes for a very comfy and inspiring loungy beach area.



Both the food and drinks are great here, though it usually takes quite a while for the waiters to find you, and again quite a while for your food to arrive. On the other hand: There should be no hurry here! It’s a beach after all!

Every Friday is “Feeling Friday” at Pllek Amsterdam. Dine and Dance with the best DJ’s in town! (DJ set starts around 20:00)
