  1. Bakkum/Castricum, Noord-Holland

    There was a point in history when the eyes of the whole of Europe were focused on the small town of Castricum. On 6th October 1799 a decisive battle took place at this normally very peaceful little town on the coast of the province of Noord-Holland, in the Napoleonic wars. Eighty thousand English, Russian, Dutch and French soldiers went into battle against each other. Twenty thousand of them would not live to tell the tale.
  2. Groet/Schoorl/Camperduin/Petten, Noord-Holland

    Nowhere else in the Netherlands are the dunes as wide (5 km) and as tall (54 m) as at Nationaal Park de Schoorlse Duinen. At Camperduin the broad chain of dunes gives way to the Hondsbossche en Pettemer Zeewering sea defence, a milestone in the history of dykes in the Netherlands.

  3. Callantsoog, Noord-Holland

    The family resort of Callantsoog has a long history, partly determined by the threat of the sea. Like Petten the former fishing village has disappeared a number of times in a storm flood, to be rebuilt further inland. The name ‘Callants’ will probably sound familiar to Scottish visitors, due to age-old fishing connections.
  4. Zoutelande, Zeeland

    The beaches of Zoutelande and Westkapelle are known as the Zeeland Riviera. Thanks to Zeeland’s diffuse light, Zoutelande was already popular with painters around 1900. The dunes of Zoutelande are among the highest in the Netherlands. Because of its strategic location the Germans built one of the Atlantic Wall’s most important defence lines on the island of Walcheren

  5. Domburg, Zeeland

    Domburg is Zeeland’s oldest seaside resort. In the 19th century the village was known internationally as a health resort of note for aristocrats and royalty. At the beginning of the 20th century an artists’ colony centred around the painters Jan Toorop and Piet Mondriaan settled in the village, founding the Domburg School.

  9. The Great Peak Fault

    For nearly 200 years geologists have debated about the great geological fault that occurs at Ravenscar and which has such a dramatic impact on the landscape. This major dislocation of the strata has given rise to several different interpretations over the years. Have we now reached the truth?

  10. Dinosaur Footprints

    160 million years ago, dinosaurs walked where we walk today! It is now well over 100 years since the first dinosaur footprints were discovered on the Yorkshire coast. Since that time many more prints have been found at numerous locations along the coastline and at inland exposures.
