The eight kilometers of beach are known for their beautiful natural areas, such as Meijendel, the largest single-piece dune strip in South Holland.
Here still exist traces of the Atlantikwall (Atlantic Wall), the great line of defense 2,685 kilometers in length, built by the Germans during World War II. The underground corridors and bunkers form to this day a nature reserve of bats and have a protected status.
At the Wassenaarse Slag you will find breweries with a view of the North Sea.
Further on, in the dunes, is Katwijk aan Zee, an old fishing village. You go through Oude Rijn ("old Rhine") to arrive in Leiden. This is another historic town with many ‘hofjes‘, old facades and buildings from the 15th to the 18th century.
