Strand Egmond aan Zee

Reviewed By Hanneke_8 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Egmond has a nice wide beach to walk. However, the dunes are not very high here. You can see the roofs of homes and hotels over the dunes. Quite different in that respect from Zandvoort or Ijmuiden. The place has a typical touristy feel to it, but it is enjoyable. Several nice beach cafe's on the beach, which were open although it was the middle of the winter. All in all, an enjoyable beach to visit.

Benedictushof

Reviewed By bas k - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

I enjoyed the peaceful butterfly Gardens for half an hour(free entrance) and the candle-food-shop.The 10th century medieval Monestery ruins were demolished in the 19th century and the Benedictushof was rebuild 1933.
Fragments of the medieval monestery of Egmond Binnen are on display at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and are the oldest medieval fragments in that museum.
Nearby Cut-flower garden" PLUKTUIN BAKKUM"is worth a look for half an hour if open.
