Beach “Zandloper” is the most northern beach of Julianadorp aan Zee. The beach was formerly also known as “Ship on the Beach”, named after the former pavilion. The pavilion has now been replaced and modernized, and is now called “Zee van Tijd”. Unfortunately it burned to the ground in 2016 and is presently being rebuilt.
