Noordwijk and Katwijk. Sandy beach for miles and miles! Enough space to launch your kite safely. Pay attention during high season when millions of sunbathers are also enjoying the beach. Season lasts from April to December. Expect to wear your 5/4 or 4/3 mm wetsuit all year round. Water temperature varies from 8°C in winter/early spring to 20°C in summer.
