Shopping by the sea
The area around the shopping centre is also where you will find historic Katwijk, with its winding streets and fishermen’s cottages. In the shopping area, there are lots of opportunities to take a break from shopping, for a bite to eat or something to drink. And the promenade? It is never more than a five-minute walk away. Check out the local shopkeepers’ association website Winkelhart Zeezijde for more information.

The Katwijk weekly market takes place every Friday between 11:00 and 17:00 at Marktplein (Piet Heinlaan, next to swimming pool Aquamar). Rijnsburg has its own weekly market, on Tuesdays from 13:00 to 17:00, at shopping centre de Hoftuin.
In the summer months of July and August, every Tuesday, the shopping heart of Katwijk aan Zee is taken over by the Tourist Market. This market is not just about shopping and strolling past more than one hundred and thirty stalls selling sunglasses, clothes, food, leather goods, hobby and gift items. There are musical performances and demonstrations of old crafts, there is a focus on traditional dress and fishing, and there is always a special activity for children. Every week, there is a different theme and the fun continues until late; the Tourist Market is held from 13:00 to 21:00.
