"Katwijk" Katwijk aan Zee by nighthawk

Katwijk aan Zee Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 55 photos

This little fishermen's village still tries to keep some of it s old charm and holds off as many as modern changes as it can.
Religion is part of the reason why, but if I had to choose between Katwijk or Scheveningen, I for sure would choose Katwijk for it s feeling of cosiness.

Don't be afraid Katwijk is a sleepy town, there's lots to see and do, and one can even shop if wanted.
Just on the Sunday all is closed, they do honour the 7th day of the week and it does add to the charm of Katwijk.

And as my aunt told me, they sell some pretty good fish!

    Just spent a weekend in Katwijk and also made a short visit to Scheveningen - Traffic jams were a nightmare when following the "U" instead of the closed A12!
