Valid advice "Stay Home" still in force, but Katwijk is not closed.
The tourist office regularly receives telephone calls about the accessibility of the Katwijk beach and dunes. Apparently the impression has been created that Katwijk is hermetically sealed. That is not the case. You can still walk along the beach and through the dunes and visit the shops in our village.
What is the current situation?
The cabinet has committed to an "intelligent lockdown". Lucky for us we don't have to stay in all day. There are plenty of places where you can enjoy a delicious coffee-to-go, buy a fish or enjoy an ice cream. But if too many people want to get a breath of fresh air at the same time, the 1.5 meter distance is compromised and the parking lots are closed, in the worst case also the ‘Coast garage’ and the beach entrances.
Use your common sense and take responsibility. If you notice that the 1.5 meter distance is not achievable, come back at a less busy time.
We look forward to welcoming you - Team VVV Katwijk
