Plenty of parking space!
There are a lot of possibilities to park you car in Katwijk. In the centre of Katwijk paid parking applies for most of the streets. You can park on the street or in one of the municipal multi-storey car parks.
You have to pay in the parking zones:
• From Monday till and including Saturday from 10 AM - 7 PM.
• On Thursday from 10 AM - 9 PM.
In Katwijk, people with a disabled parking permit may use their permit in permit holder areas and paid parking areas. They do not need to pay any fees in Katwijk.
Parking for hotel guests
Guests of hotels and lodging houses can ask their host for a special parking permit. This is the so-called ‘dagkraskaart’ (literally: day scratch card) which, after being dated, is valid until 10.00 a.m. the next day.
Permit holder areas
Certain areas and streets in the municipality of Katwijk have been designated as permit holder areas. Parking here is restricted to holders of a parking license issued by the council. Signs with ‘zone P vergunninghouders’ warn you when you enter such an area. However, beware, these signs are not placed in every single street of the area. The end of the zone is marked with the sign ‘einde zone P vergunninghoudersgebied’.
Multi-storey car parks
Katwijk has two public multi-storey car parks. Parking here is cheaper than on the street and your car is protected against harsh weather conditions. It’s nice and cool in the summer, ice-free and dry in the winter. The multi-storey’s are opened 24/7. The ‘Tramstraat’ car park has room for 125 cars and is situated just 250 meters from the beach (a three-minute walk). From the ‘Princehaven’, 500 meters away, it takes you 6 minutes to reach the beach. Beware! If you loose your parking ticket, an exit card will cost you € 30,-. There’s a lift situated in the Princehaven car park (near the Albert Heijn supermarket). If you have problems climbing stairs, have a pram with you, etcetera, we advise you to use this facility. The Tramstraat car park does not have a lift.
Rates on public holidays
On public holidays (Ascension Day, Good Friday, Easter and Whitsun) the aforementioned rates are applicable. Only on New Year’s Day, Christmas Day and Boxing Day parking is free of charge.
Parking during the tourist-season
On the Zuid-Boulevard, Sportlaan, Zuidduinseweg and at the Noordduinen parking area, parking is free during the winter months. At these locations, payment starts at 1 April and ends at 1 October. During this period, the day scratch cards are not valid on the Boulevard and Strandweg.
