Castricum aan Zee offers a broad sandy beach;the beaches become more quiet further away from the main entrance and beach-side restaurants.I enjoyed walking in the surf after a bike-ride through the "Duinreservaat Castricum".

Beautiful beach with fine, white sand . Great for long walks and paddling with kids. Toilets and showers available as well as umbrellas for rent.

Walk a bit away from the entrance and you'll have plenty of space. Very friendly beach area. Not so much focussed on looks and appearances. Very few hipsters compared to Bergen or Zandvoort. Good places to eat as well.

You can walk there and go by bike, super nature around, just travel from the railway station (past our house), and head straight for the beach through the dunes. Unspoilt and like an island, if you are lucky sunny as well, look for Heemskerk Baean...More
