Holiday Park; Golf; Near water
There is so much to do in and around the holiday park. Below we have provided a limited overview of the possibilities. Inside the bungalow you’ll find additional information.
Near the bungalow there is a playground for hours of fun. From the garden you can watch the children play. There is also a football field with real goals, a basketball court, sand volleyball court and a table tennis table.
100 meters from the bungalow there are two swimming pools complete with sun beds and sitting areas. There is also a shallow pool for toddlers and preschoolers.
Cycling through the North Holland landscape or to the beach is a "must". If you bring your own bicycles, there is space in the shed to store them.
The beach of St. Maartenszee is just 5 km (bungalows 1, 2 and 3) or 8 km (bungalow 4) away. This beach was designated a "Blue Flag" beach, which stands for a very clean beach. Here you can fly kites, build sandcastles or just play in the water, or enjoy a meal at the cozy beach pavilion or watch the sun set, which is the ultimate holiday feeling.
The extensive trails through the dunes are eminently suitable for Nordic walking.
Enjoy the beautiful bulb fields, typical of the vast North Holland polder landscape where you’ll also find green meadows, farms, windmills, dikes, charming villages and small towns with plenty of cycling and walking possibilities.
Authentic villages like Valkoog and Groenveld are also worth visiting. Callantsoog is full of activities: excursions to the nature reserve of Zwanenwater, fairs, events on the beach and cozy cafes, restaurants and bars. The climbing dunes in the Schoorl Dunes Nature Reserve means guaranteed fun for everyone.
Schagen itself, in the West Frisian countryside, is a lively town with a nice center, ideal for entertainment and shopping. The large number of shops are not only highly regarded with respect to quality, but also offer plenty of variety. There is also a shopping centre with all the allure of a "shopping mall". In Schagen you can enjoy a day of shopping and then relax at a café or savor a good meal courtesy of the large number of eateries in the city. Not just in the city center but around the church and lining the streets around the downtown area there are many nice restaurants and small bars.
All year round - but especially during summer – you will find large events in Schagen. For example, in March / April there is the Paasvee Exhibition; a nine day fair in July; and Popweekend the first week of August. In early September there is a short course harness race plus Agricultural Days, while in between you’ll find various art markets. A visit to Schagen Castle, with its war museum housed in an old tower and museum of West Frisian culture is nothing to sneeze at.
In the summer Schagen is bustling with activity as the West Frisian Folklore program is underway from June 30th to September 1st. This West Frisian Market is entirely dominated by West Frisian folklore. Part of the local population can be seen adorned in traditional costume - truly a feast for the eyes!
Other cities that should not be missed include: Alkmaar, with its famous cheese market, an old steam train running between Horn and Medemblik, and the naval town of Den Helder with its National Fleet Days. A day on the island of Texel is sure to be a unique experience.
Finally, there is the best theme park in the northern part of North Holland: "The Goldfish". Here you’ll find a huge outdoor play area, 3 large covered playgrounds and a cafeteria with extensive terrace. Parents are admitted free. Every Monday (April / October) and every Sunday (November / March) there is a "flea market" where you can buy practically everything. Don’t forget to haggle!
