Mijntje and Trijntje, two girls from Zealand, go to Zandvoort beach. On the tram, they are seen by two young men who start flirting with them. Arriving at the beach, the girls decide to go swimming, and they hire a bathing machine. They are so naïve that they put on their bathing costumes over their voluminous underwear. After playing in the water and ducking a little boy who has been splashing them, they come out and start frolicking on the sand. A policeman arrests them for disturbing the peace. 

This early comedy feels at times like a documentary, containing spontaneous shots of daily life; on the tram and the beach.
