Egmond aan Zee

Egmond aan Zee
The Essential
This small seaside resort is situated in the middle of the dunes. Although it has lost much of its character, it is home to a pleasant beach with views of IJmuiden's white wind turbines. In the upper town, the small Van Egmond museum depicts the history of the villages of Egmond aan Zee, Egmond-Binnen and Egmond aan den Hoef, the day-to-day life of fisherman in bygone days, and the plundering of shipwrecks.
