Vast wavy dunes area with bird-rich forests, open moorland and a notch in the dunes where the sea can flow in again. The outstretched dunes area of Schoorl is among the most beautiful in the Netherlands. Nowhere are the dunes wider and higher. In some places they are no less than five kilometers wide. It is climbing and descending along the paths. Through bird-rich forests, open heath and wavy dunes. In some places, the sand can even spurt. The Schoorl Dunes (Schoorlse Duinen) are popular with cyclists, skaters and riders.
A lot of walkers leave Bergen aan Zee alone. That is a big mistake. If you are looking for peace and quietness, space and beautiful landscapes you can make beautiful walking-tours. And there is a lovely fresh sea-air.
The coast of Bergen aan Zee has wide beaches and offers magnificent views over the sea. From the view of the coast is beautiful. The beach lies shining in the sun and goes in a friendly curve with the sea and the sea can sometimes lighten unlikely bleu. And along the flood mark there are always people walking, weather or no weather. Bergen aan Zee is with all its catering industry at the sunny residence the stopping place for walkers.
