I took my family here for the day whilst staying nearby. What a find! Lovely sandy beach, not too busy, playground and facilities nearby. One tip watch out for the seagulls if you have food they are very aggressive!

This is a typical Dutch beach, which means nice flat, sandy beaches and lots of it. However what makes Katwijk a great place to come is the easy parking and access right on the beach front, which is free on Sunday. There are at least...More
