Egmond aan Zee is an idyllic place at the Dutch coast. Here you can unwind in a hospitable atmosphere and enjoy the sun, wind and sea. Fondness of children has a great tradition in Egmond aan Zee: The fresh air, extensive beaches, the low water at the shores and the exciting range of trips ensure for lots of great days. In the evening the family can get cosy, cook something tasty or barbecue and let the day come to a nice end. Not without reason was Egmond aan Zee selected as our “best holiday resort 2013” – atraveo customers rated the place extremely positive.

Vacation in a holiday home in Egmond aan Zee

Egmond comprises of the districts Egmond aan Zee, Egmond aan den Hoef and Egmond-Binnen. The most well known is Egmond aan Zee. Here you can find typical Dutch architecture, the renowned romantic lighthouse from the 18th century, holiday parks and apartment houses.
Spend your vacation in a holiday house in a quiet side road, in a terraced house or summer house. Sometimes the entrance fee for the dunes is included in the rental price. One can also find holiday houses in Egmond aan Zee that welcome dogs. Or alternatively spend a vacation in a chalet in a holiday park. Here you are amongst other vacationers and still are able to enjoy the privacy of a small house. A heated pool, playground and children entertainment provide fun for the little ones. The apartment complex at the boulevard of Egmond aan Zee offers modern amenities and a view of the sea from the spacious and wind protected balcony. With atraveo you are sure to find the suitable object for your vacation.

Typical Egmond aan Zee: Sea and nature

The large lovely beach of Egmond aan Zee is surely the number one tourist attraction. Relax on the sun loungers or beach chairs, watch the kids swim, play around or build sand castles. Let kites go up at the activity beach or go windsurfing. The offer at the beach is first class: Lifeguards, sanitary facilities and of course a beach cafe makes the time spent here a joyous time. Directly next to Egmond aan Zee the beautiful Noordhollandse Duinreservaat starts which is a reserve with varied grown landscape where one can enjoy lovely hikes, rides and bicycle tours. The smooth dunes overgrown with grass alternate with the red coloured heath and rustic forests with gnarled oaks and pine trees. Everywhere one can observe birds and other animals that are at home here in this diverse landscape.

Enjoy and discover Egmond aan Zee from a holiday home

Despite it being quite contemplative in Egmond aan Zee there are many very good restaurants and  cafés, numerous bars as well as the 'Club 5' for young people. There are also good shopping options available in Egmond and surrounding area. There are a lot of small shops which have long opening hours with some even open on Sundays. Every Thursday morning there is a weekly market in Egmond aan Zee. Egmond aan den Hoef was formerly the home of the Count of Egmond. The ruins of the moated castle are very worth seeing. In Egmond Binnen particularly the abbey with candle manufactory and pottery as well as the church with wall paintings are worth seeing. Also there are a number of events organised in the music pavilion.

Trips around Egmond

Nice towns in the neighbourhood of Egmond are Bergen and Alkmaar but also Amsterdam and Haarlem are just 50 minutes away by car. In Bergen aan Zee there is a lovely sea aquarium – a worthwhile trip even if it rains. Every Friday the famous traditional cheese market takes place in Alkmaar where massive cheese wheels are stacked, sold and in breathtaking speed loaded at the market place. Who wants to witness this spectacle must get up very early and best come by bicycle as there are always a lot of visitors. But even without the cheese Alkmaar has its lure. Equally enticing is a boat trip across the tight canals or shopping tour through the numerous streets. Also the cheese museum as well as some historic patrician houses and romantic drawbridges are worth seeing. Only 30 minutes from Egmond in Zaandam one will come across the Zaanse Schans district. Here you can visit a windmill in full operation. Furthermore there are countless traditional houses with craftsman’s establishments and shops that take you back to the Netherlands of the 18th century. If you would like to do something relaxing on the return journey and are driving past Arnhem then you could visit Burgers Zoo. Here many animals are housed in enclosures that recreate a natural habitat. Plants and animals that get along with another are placed together – a very special zoo.

    “Child friendliness I can not judge, because my focus was not on it. Since I traveled with dog my focus was on it. It is all within walking distance. The price performance ratio is adjusted.

    At the beach I did not see any fresh water shower. What can be useful with a dog. Also, I have hardly seen water bowls for the animals. I know differently from other beaches in North Holland. Kotbeutespender and trash can many are present. Unfortunately not on the beach accesses themselves. Also I do not know this from this region.

    With my dog I really enjoyed the beach and walks in the dune reserve.”
