Why go?

Holland is well known for its splendid beaches. The Dutch coastline offers unlimited opportunities for water sport fanatics, nature lovers and beach fans. The beaches of the Netherlands can be divided in three groups: the Wadden Islands, the coastline of the provinces North-Holland and South-Holland, and Zeeland.
