Satellite Sports Cafe
A sports bar that also serves a small sandwhich menu and has two big screen TVs. During the American football season, there are some games playing on Sundays, just later in the day because of the time difference.
Amsterdam has 5 temporary summer beaches:
1) Blijburg aan Zee
This is a sandy beach on the new IJburg Island terrain. There is a beach café and a lifeguard.
2) Strand West
This is a wide sandy beach with a view over the IJ. There is the Cantina Mobilé restaurant and a lot more.
3) Amsterdam Plage
This is a small beach along the Silodam, a dam that streches into the IJ at the Stenen Hoofd.
4) NEMO Summertime
NEMO at the Oosterdok is a well-known museum and the view from the rooftop is great. Add some sand and water and it becomes even more delightful.
5) Strand Zuid
The harbour of the RAI Exhibition center has been changed into a beach with hammocks and terrasses. The A10 highway is not the best view, but you can enjoy the sun.Related to:

Circuit Racing, Zandvoort
Circuit Park Zandvoort, in the north of the town a short distance from the beach, used to be the venue for the Dutch Formula One Grand Prix motor race, but now it hosts only much smaller events. If you come on a summer weekend, however, you might find a Formula Three training session or a Porsche meeting under way
Equipment: Zandvoort is bustling with people after a day at the race. The locals really get into this we noticed when the trains were packed like sardines on the way back to Haarlem!
Ceiling of the Scheepvaarthuis entrance
I just could not help myself when I looked up at the ceiling of the open entrance of the Scheepvaarthuis.
So I laid down at the floor ... I know i know :-) but I now for sure I am the only one with this pic ;-)
