My den: it’s my sanctuary
IJmuiden is The Amsterdam fishing harbour with wide beaches.and daily fresh fish at the various fish shops in the harbour area.
The city centre of Amsterdam is just a 30 minutes drive by car, (out the the rush hour), and the city centre of Haarlem ( Harlem) is a 20 minutes drive. Next door is the National Parc " The Kennemer Duinen "(http://www.np-zuidkennemerland.nl) which you can reach by bike or by foot, nice biking and walking routes. Our house is situated in the dunes and 100 mtrs. walking distance from the beach. The beach has two beach hangouts where you can hire subboards, take sub, kyte and blow cart lessons.
If you like biking our place is a good base for making biking trips through the Amsterdam harbour, and up north trough the dunes up to picturesque villages like Egmond and Bergen.
