About Zandvoort to Katwijk

A popular summer resort with beach restaurants and bars, where the sound of the motor racing circuit can reverberate around the line-up in offshore winds. To the south of the town the beach opens out into miles of empty sand, with plenty of peaks to explore. Good in smaller swells when lefts and rights are popular with the large longboard crew. Watch out for rips when size picks up.
