Beach bars enjoy a successful summer

Dutch beach bars had a good season this year with average earnings up 15% on 2008, according to the North Sea cafe and bar operators’ association.

‘In terms of the weather it was a great year and so a lot more people came to the beaches than in 2008,’ spokesman Paul Zonneveld told the Telegraaf. However, the number of beach-based corporate events was down around 10%, he said.
Holiday parks, campsites and amusement parks also reported a good summer, news agency ANP said.
