Right next to the front door of Residence Westduin, you will find the North Holland dune landscape, with numerous hiking and cycling routes. Take a stroll between the beach grass and maritime pines to the wide sandy beach and let yourself be surprised by the foxes and rabbits. The Zwanenwater, where the orchids are in full bloom around the dune lake in June, is a real gem in the region.
Day trips in the municipality of Schagen
Your adventure starts in Sint Maartenszee with a delicious cup of coffee on the terrace and a nice lunch followed by a visit to the nearby car museum. In the afternoon, you can drive or cycle to Korenmolen de Hoop (flour mill) and the museum farm by the sea just north of the holiday park. Your day ends with a romantic sunset dinner at one of the beach pavilions.
Colourful bulb fields
Throughout the year, North Holland is a wonderful holiday destination. But if you visit in April or May, you will find an extra colourful scene! The region has numerous bulb fields where crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips bloom beautifully during spring. A Dutch explosion of colours that makes a visit to the region well worthwhile.
Kids fun: De Goudvis and Land van Fluwel
Your kids will have a wonderful time in amusement parks De Goudvis and Land van Fluwel, which are located near the holiday park. So go on an adventure together and experience a day full of fun & outdoor activities with your whole family. From riding water bikes and jumping on air trampolines at De Goudvis to following a track at Land van Fluwel where you'll learn all about the history of the tulip bulb in a creative way.
Walking and cycling routes
Cycle through the dunes to the northernmost point of the province until you reach Den Helder and beyond. Watch the boat arrive and depart on its way to Texel. You might even spot some seals. The area is also rich in hiking routes. Follow the signs and explore the pine forest. If you follow the shell path you will automatically reach the sea!
