As far as I know this little seaside resort used to be a small village named Noordwijk where there is nothing to do. Sorry Madame Noordwijk for that conclusion! Apologize for that!
For now I do know Noordwijk already existed 2000 years BC (!!!) and the first citizens, probably fishermen, lived there around 1200 AD. It was written down as "Norwige, Northeke, Norwik", and some other simular names. And around 1860 Noordwijk became a seaside resort for the rich and famous who specially came for the medical sea-water of the North Sea ... just like in Scheveningen near The Hague.
Noordwijk turned into number three seaside resort and got famous for its flowers all around, named the Bollenstreek (Area for Flower). My elder pictures of Noordwijk I lost, and returned on a very cloudy day with a beautiful, dramatic, really Dutch grey background ... I promise to place some sunny photographs soon, ok?
- Pros:boulevard, large beach and wide ocean, great views, flowers,
- Cons:small town talks by snobby and funny ladies
- In a nutshell:small seaside resort - great holiday stay
