About family seaside resort Egmond aan Zee

Egmond aan Zee is a popular family seaside resort on the North Holland coast. It is a perfect combination of sandy beach, dunes, sea and beautiful forests. The many beach pavilions offer all the possibilities for a nice day in the sun. Behind the dunes lies Egmond, where you can find many nice boutiques, restaurants and terraces. Egmond aan Zee used to be a fishing village, where city children were sent to recuperate. Today Egmond aan Zee is still the place where you are welcomed with open arms!
