Warmly recommended: to rent bicycles. Even if you don't rent them for all of you, having at least one bike on hand if someone wants to go have a quick dive into the sea, gives your stay just that little bit extra.

It takes about 40 minutes to walk to the beach through the dunes via Noorderstraat, or about ten, fifteen minutes by bike. You will reach Strandslag Scheilaan (called 'Schellaan' on the map). A quiet beach without pavilions or anything. The information binder in the house has a map to show you the way. You can take a look at it at home here beforehand.
You can also take the car via another road (the Zeeweg) towards the busy beach Castricum aan Zee. Ample opportunity for eating and drinking. About ten minutes away from Zeeveld. The beach pavilion we hear the best stories about: Deining. Paid parking only.
Purchase dune entry ticket mandatory
Everybody who wants to cycle (or walk) through the dunes and who is older than 18, needs to purchase an individual entry ticket. They are available at a ticket machine next to parking lot Noorderstraat.
A walking and cycling map is available for you at the home. In the information folder in the home you will also find plans detailing all paths in the direct surroundings, and the way to the beach. You can already download it here.
