One of the best summer terraces in town. It's a mix of a beach club with a restaurant. Go during the morning for breakfast with a view and a cool breeze from the ocean. Go in the evening for some chilled music and drinks by the water. Do you have a toddler? They'll enjoy playing in the sand and gravel, finding random broken pieces of glass or nails (just look out), but for real, they'll enjoy the gravel while you have a good coffee or some good fresh foods focused on vegetables.
In a very trendy part of Amsterdam Noord, Pllek is a very cool place to hang out on those warm days and evenings as there are beach type chairs right by the water. Take in the skyline of downtown Amsterdam while enjoying a beer and burger. Great place to watch football matches too when large tournaments are running.
