Sport in Noordwijk

Noordwijk is a real treat for sport-loving people. From walking to kitesurfing, from horse riding to golf and from biking to playing tennis, anything’s possible! 

Watersports in Noordwijk

For the water sportsmen and women among us, there are of course ample facilities. Noordwijk is a true kitsurf hotspot; there are 2 kitesurf schools. Kitesurfing is allowed on three places on the beach: at KSN, near exit 21 and near Langevelderslag near Nora’s radio station.

The Surfschool offers lessons and afterwards, you can chill out at location host the Branding Beach Club.

The Strand provides the organisation and implementation of a very diverse range of challenging beach activities, including many water sport events like powerkiting, surfing canoeing, beach golf, surf grafting, kitesurfing, golfsurfing etc. Visit www.the-strand.nl 


Of course it’s possible to swim in the clean North Sea. Noordwijk has had a blue flag for years and has an experienced rescue team. But if you think it’s too cold to swim in the sea, Hotels van Oranje also offer an excellent alternative for non-guests as well, which is a 32 degree heated pool. They even have a theatre: the Aqua Cinema Oranje, where children can enjoy the latest movie drifting on their air mattresses. Address:

Walking and biking

Want some fresh air? The ‘Coast & Sea walk’ will guide you through the dunes of Noordwijk and back along the beach. Still in a discovering mood? Then the ‘Noorwijkse Uurtje’ (The Hour of Noordwijk) is just the thing for you. This leads you past special places throughout Noordwijk. And there are tons more possible walking routes, available at the Visitor Centre.

The beautiful landscape with its expansive forests, the rough dunes and, not to be forgotten, the deliciously smelling bulb fields in spring make Noordwijk immensely suitable as the starting point of bike rides. Various (junction) bike routes have been made for you, available at the Visitor Centre. Bike rental at Profile Mooijekond, Schoolstraat 45 Phone: 071-3612826 or on www.mooijekind-fietsen.nl.


In Forestry area Noordwijk, an ATB route has been made for the adventurous biker. The route passes through forest and dunes, the height differences are not too big, but fairly steep in places. The route is not too hard, but technically difficult and stretches over about 8km. Starting point: Parking lot between Duinweg 89-91 in Noordwijk, follow the red pictograms.


Do you like running? Then Noordwijk is the place for you. The sea air will do a runner more than good!


The Golfclub of Noordwijk, also called the “de Noordwijkse”, has one of the most beautiful and challenging courses of the Netherlands. The course takes 5th place on the European list. You do need to meet certain conditions to be allowed on the course. More info: www.noordwijksegolfclub.nl.
There is also the Golf Centrum Noordwijk where, as opposed to the Noordwijkse, everyone can become a member. The GCN is an easily accessible public golf centre with a short 9 holes course, driving range and putting green. The third golf course on the Tespelduyn estate in Noordwijkerhout is the latest acquisition.

Hippy sport

In Noordwijk and Noordwijkerhout, you can go horse riding year-round on the beach and through the woods. There are a few rules in Noordwijk you need to adhere to if you want to ride on the beach. For instance, you can’t come onto the beach on horseback near the esplanade. If you want to make an outdoor ride with one of the riding schools in Noordwijkerhout, riding school Smit (www.manegesmit.nl Phone 0252-372763) or riding school Bakker (www.manege.nl Phone 0252-372628) will take you along on one of the most beautiful rider routes through Noordwijk. Every weekend and every day during summer, you can join in on an outdoor ride through the woods, dunes and the beach. In order to participate, you need to be able to control a horse while walking, trotting and galloping in a group. This also applies to Manege Recreatie Stal in Noordwijk at the Duindamseweg  (www.manegerecreatie.com Phone 06-42923545).
