A well-developed network of cycling and hiking trails awaits you on site, leading you either along the wild and romantic coast with its dunes or deep into the idyllic hinterland. Even if you want to go on a tour at short notice, this is not a problem because Noordwijk offers a wide selection of rental bikes, ranging from trekking bikes to mountain bikes and e-bikes.Noordwijk for families
The 13 kilometre long and up to 60 metre wide sandy beach alone makes Noordwijk a paradise for families who want to relax on the North Sea as part of a beach and bathing holiday. Thanks to the shallow shore areas, even the little ones can have fun swimming in the waves. Those who are tired of sunbathing, building sandcastles and splashing around can pay a visit to the Adventure Park, which also has a trampoline course and an 18-hole miniature golf course. And if the weather doesn't play along, the KidsZoo indoor playground is a good alternative.
