Camping on the sea, enjoying the great outdoors, sampling culture.
The campsite is located in the dunes of IJmuiden aan Zee, and a few kilometres to the north of Zandvoort. The wonderful natural beauty of the Zuid-Kennemerland National Park right next-door offers plenty of opportunities for cycling or hiking.
A day at the beach is also one of the many possibilities. Build giant sandcastles with your children, participate in active water sports, stroll in the surf and breathe in the wonderful sea air, and of course go fishing on the Zuidpier or on a fishing boat. A bit further away, you can visit the marinas, the North Sea Canal or the sea locks!
You can sample the local culture on day trips to the nearby cities of Alkmaar, Amsterdam, and Haarlem, cities that offer plenty of culture and entertainment to even the most demanding holidaygoer.
If small-scale is what you are looking for, visit the picturesque towns of Zandvoort, Bloemendaal, Oud-Velsen, Santpoort or Wijk aan Zee. There is a bus stop right next to the entrance to the campsite.
On those days that the weather is not terribly conducive to spending outdoors, you can visit the Beverwijkse Bazaar at the weekend in Beverwijk (Europe’s largest indoor weekend market).
