In the summer months, there is a relaxed atmosphere on Katwijk beach. How about some sunbathing, a game of footie or a refreshing dip in the sea? But there is so much more to do on the beach! A visit to the beach library, admiring exhibitions at the DunaAtelier or looking out across the outlet, where the Rhine flows into the sea. A system of two sluices regulates the water level for the lower hinterland. An exceptional place, well worth a visit! Download this beach map (due to size not recommendable for mobile devices).

Beach wheelchairs
Beach wheelchairs are available for use by disabled guests, making the beach more easily accessible. They can be found at Strandhuys Katwijk, Zilt and ‘t Wantveld.

Safety along the shores

Katwijk’s beach has a lot to offer. Sunbathing, swimming, playing: a day at the beach is fun! But be careful: the sea can be tricky. For the inexperienced swimmer the sea can even be dangerous. Don’t enter the water alone, look out for each other and don’t lose sight of your children.
