Immediately on arriving at Noorderstraat, you pass a big sign on your right saying ‘Ingang Noordhollands Duinreservaat – Noorderstraat’. Stop here and park your car on the parking site (meadow) immediately on your left. Having parked your car, now walk back to Noorderstraat (away from the main road) and a little further on, on your right, you will see a ticket machine selling dune acces tickets. Bypass this machine and walk on. Then, coming to a split in the road, take the street to your left. After about 50 meters you see a green gate on your right. This is ZeeVELD.
No cars allowed within the confines of the ZeeVELD property. Parking only at the meadow/carpark at entrance Noorderstraat.
