Finding the highest waves of the North Sea

Wijk aan Zee village is located directly on the North Sea and on the edge of a vast dune area. In such an environment you can obviously find many possibilities for recreation and relaxation. The wide North Sea beach of Wijk aan Zee, stretching out up to the North Pier of IJmuiden and up to the neighbouring Heemskerk, really offers you all you can expect on the coast. In the course of the year the active village community. Wijk aan Zee is known for being one of the best surfing spots of the Netherlands, just next to the North pier the waves are at their best. In the winter months there are plenty of surfing and kite lessons by certified instructors on this location as well.


Photo taken at the North pier of Wijk aan Zee - the Netherlands. Surfing like this in Holland on such high waves is a rare occasion. There can be some nice waves you just have to know when. Real good days are probably only around the 3 to 5 times a year. Wijk aan Zee is a great kitesurf spot in Netherlands but don't go to Holland on a surf trip, sometimes there are weeks without waves, especially in the summer, it's just not worth spending your trip. If you want some real surf, go to France, Ireland, Spain, the Canary Islands. There is some of Europe's finest surf and in the winter it gets big. Photo 1/250s, ISO80, F4.0 at zoom 319 mm.


Wijk aan Zee ligt direct aan de Noordzee en aan de rand van een uitgestrekt duingebied. In zo'n omgeving vind je uiteraard veel mogelijkheden van recreatie en ontspanning. Het brede Noordzeestrand van Wijk aan Zee die zich uitstrekt tot de Noordpier van IJmuiden en tot het aangrenzende Heemskerk biedt werkelijk alles wat u aan de kust mag verwachten. Wijk aan Zee staat bekend om een van de beste surfspots van Nederland, net naast de Noordpier zijn de golven op zijn best. Zelfs of juist in de winter maanden wordt er op deze locatie ook volop surf en kite les gegeven door gediplomeerde instructeurs.
