For an eZee Dutch beach vacation, head to Egmond aan Zee

Now a popular seaside resort, Egmond aan Zee was once known for its vibrant art scene. This former fishing village on the north Netherlands coast was an artists' colony in the late 1800s, and it still has a relaxed, boho vibe. An Egmond aan Zee vacation rental makes a great base for a Dutch seaside break. Take a stroll along the promenade, visit the landmark Van Speyk Lighthouse, or enjoy a leisurely picnic in the sand dunes. Nearby, you can stock up on your favourite Dutch cheeses at the Alkmaar Cheese Market in the historic town of Alkmaar.

Things to do

A Dutch cheese market? You Gouda be kidding

A 6-mile drive inland from your Egmond aan Zee vacation rental is the historic town of Alkmaar. It's best known for Alkmaar Cheese Market held on Waagplein. Thousands of people from all over the world descend on the town to witness the town's vibrant cheese trading, a tradition which dates back to the 14th century when Alkmaar was first granted weighing rights. It's held every Friday morning, and select Tuesday evenings, between March and September. And if that's not enough cheese, nip into the Dutch Cheese Museum, which explores the history of Dutch cheese throughout the years.

Activities

Tiptoe through the tulips in Egmond-Binnen

Squeezed between the sand dunes and the North Sea, life in Egmond aan Zee revolves around the beach. Promising 3 miles of wide, blonde sands banked by rolling sand dunes, it's the perfect spot for a family picnic. In the summer, it's draws a loyal active set, who come to windsurf, sail, or play beach volleyball. Sound a bit too energetic? There's also plenty of ice cream bars, beachfront bars, and restaurants to relax in. For a real taste of Holland, head to the neighboring village of Egmond-Binnen, which is famous for its colorful tulip fields in spring.

Weather

Sunshine and rainy days—welcome to the Netherlands coast

It's safe to say that the north Netherlands coast probably sees the best of the Dutch weather. In summer, between June and September, this buzzy seaside resort is blessed with endless blue skies, sunshine, and temperatures around 75 degrees. But there may be the odd shower, so pack an umbrella. It's also when Egmond aan Zee vacation rentals are at a premium. For the widest choice, visit in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall, when it's a little cooler and there's more chance of rain. Winter is colder still, and the odd snow shower is not uncommon.

Natural features

Coastal walks are fun, but no monk-eying around

Perched on the Netherlands North Sea coast, Egmond aan Zee is a 28-mile drive northwest of Amsterdam. This charming seaside resort is renowned for its beautiful rolling sand dunes which fringe much of this coast. There are plenty of nice beach walks and coastal paths which run along this stretch, all with sweeping sea views. For something a little different, take the Monnikenpad Trail, a 5-mile cultural walking path which follows in the footsteps of 13th-century monks from the nearby monastery. It passes through some of the country's famous Dutch dikes, which date back to the Middle Ages.
