Blokart / Landsailing is a blast!

The amazing thrill-packed new sport of blokart landsailing is a blast!

Wijk aan Zee is known for being one of the best surfing spots of the Netherlands, just next to the North pier the waves are at their best.

The nicest beach in Holland :o)

Wijk aan Zee has one of the nicest beaches along the coast because it is wide: lots of space,
even on a hot summers day when most of the beaches are packed.
The place to be for Kite-surfing; great waves or on the beach for blokart/landsailing.

Wijk aan Zee is a small town on the coast of the North Sea in the province of North Holland of the Netherlands. 20 min. from Amsterdam.

The hotels of Wijk aan Zee vary from neoclassical architecture to very modern and are all accommodated with facilities you would desire with a contemporary guest room. They are situated on or at a small walking distance from beach, dunes, sea and village centre. The North Pier is a paradise for anglers and he nearby beach is known as one of the best surfing spots of our country.

Wijk aan Zee. The beautiful beachtown in Holland

The village is located directly on the North Sea and on the edge of a vast dune area. In such an environment you can obviously find many possibilities for recreation and relaxation.
The wide North Sea beach of Wijk aan Zee, stretching out up to the North Pier of IJmuiden and up to the neighbouring Heemskerk, really offers you all you can expect on the coast. In the course of the year the active village community, both citizenry and entrepreneurs, organizes numerous events.

Loads of Bars And Livemusic! and Beach-clubs! Timboektoe, De instuif, Stradpaviljoen de Kust, SunSeaBar, Hotel Sonnevanck.
One of my fav. is Aloha Beach Club. http://www.alohabeach.nl/
