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!
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:
