Weekend getaway in Egmond aan Zee

Walk straight out of our cosy seaside on to the boulevard. A little further along, you will come across the wide, sandy beach of Egmond aan Zee. In the town itself, wander through the streets and take in the historic fishermen's cottages. Naturally, we also have numerous cafés and restaurants. Next to the wide sandy beach, where you could choose to try surfing or sailing if you so wanted, you will find the North Holland dunes, to the south of Egmond aan Zee itself. This nature reserve boasts several forests, sand dunes, small lakes and moorlands. All of these features simply serve to make this the ideal base for beautiful and diverse hiking and cycling.
