Sea, beach & dunes

Come and enjoy the magnificent views of the sea and the beach from one of the beach clubs. Or just wander onto the beach straight from the camping and dive into the waves. This will all be possible before long! As part of the national effort to strengthen the coastal defenses, Petten now has a beautiful large beach and new dunes.

Discover Petten's new beach

Working on your tan in the sand or paddling out to sea with your boat or surfboard? You can do anything you want! As part of the national effort to strengthen the coastal defenses, Petten now has a beautiful large beach, and new dunes that connect the newly appointed natural reserves. The recently built panorama dune is 26 meters high and offers spectacular views from the top. Soon new entrances to the beach will be constructed, one of which accessible for the disabled.

 

The new beach will have three beach clubs: besides the existing beach club, two new pavilions will be built. And in the future, 80 private little beach houses will arise. The beach will be divided into zones: the zone with the beach houses in the north and next to it a zone for families and recreation. Then another (smaller) zone with beach houses and in the south a boating and sports zone where small boats can be launched and where surfers can catch a wave.

 

The dunes behind the beach are perfect for nature walks. Multiple beautiful routes have been set out, past lakes and recreational areas.
