The ANWB reports that it is already busy on the roads to the beaches, including Hoek van Holland and Zandvoort. The traffic service also expects heavy traffic on European roads this weekend due to departing and returning holiday travelers.

Delays have already occurred on the roads to Zandvoort, Castricum aan Zee and Hoek van Holland around 9.30 am. The ANWB expects heavy traffic on the roads to the beaches all day long due to the warm weather.

Prepare for heat

Due to the high temperatures, the ANWB advises people to be better prepared for the road. "Bring extra water and an umbrella. So that if you break down next to the guardrail, you can at least get some shelter," said a spokesman.

The ANWB recommends that you only leave after 10 a.m. on Saturday to avoid the biggest crowds.
