Amazing huge area, near Haarlem, Amsterdam and the sea

Dunes, small ponds, cattle, deer, birdlife, it's a great park for walking and biking. Bring water, binoculars and a camera.

This is one of the places to enjoy fresh air and original nature. As many places along the North Sea Coast but especially prepared and quiet wherever you go, take a nice day and enjoy. Where do you see these cows and birds?

Easy to rent bikes for the day in Haarlem and grab a picnic to enjoy the park and the sea. Its a large scenic park with different types of scenery. I love that they imported highland hairy cows from Scotland!

Nationaal Park Zuid Kennemerland is a dune ecosystem that has been successfully restored over the last decades. The wet dune-valleys have returned bringing back lots of flowers and birds. It is likely you will see deer, foxes, and maybe even wisents. The park is excellent for walking, cycling and swimming in one of the dune lakes ('het Wed'). If you're... More

I booked a guided walk through the website of the park I paid 15 euro for just a bit over 2 hours of a pleasant walk in the nature. We saw wild horses and bisons. Amazing. The ranger gave us an interesting explanation on how and why the bosons are there and other interesting info on the flowers and the... More

We rode bikes from Haarlem through theNational Park to the beach. Paved bike trails; a few hills but nothing to steep or long. Great place for a picnic and watch the wildlife (such as Scottish Highlanders). Highly Recommend!

We had guests over from the states and we took them to this park and they loved it. We had a great time on a windy beach with nice waves after exploring the dunes. After that we enjoyed a great lunch at Parnassia.

Beautiful national park where you can spend the whole day. The dunes are amazing, there are lakes (also for swimming) and you can get throught the park to the see. I definitely suggest renting a bike (we did so in Haarlem), you will see much more.
