The beach is a wonderful place for families, with multiple playgrounds suitable for children of all ages.

It's a really enjoyable spot to visit, but it would be great if they offered a wider variety of food and drinks. The mini Margarita pizza costs 15.50€ and is only 20cm or smaller in size.

After searching for a parking spot for over an hour, I was met with complete chaos. I was disappointed to see foreigners behaving poorly and receiving no assistance from the park staff. Despite having visited this beach since I was a child, I will not be returning. Hofstade, you should be ashamed!

4 Frustrating

The beach doesn't open until 1pm? And the line is terrible, it gets really crowded. There's only one small entrance with three ticket attendants... The way it's organized is absurd. It's a shame because the place is beautiful once you're inside, but dealing with the hassle of getting in isn't worth it.
