Playing with wind, water and sand

Playing with the elements of nature. Water, wind and sand. In IJmuiden and Velsen-Noord, there are plenty of opportunities for adventure. Wind, kite and wave surfing, sailing and swimming. Take to the sea in a fast rib boat. Or beach sailing, flyboarding and blokarting on our wide beaches. The beaches of IJmuiden aan Zee are very popular. With young and old.

Sea and beach

With the Seaport Marina IJmuiden, the wide beach, beach pavilions that are open all year round and the two piers that provide a special wave action, there are unique opportunities for wind and water sports along the coast of Velsen. To be able to respond to this, specific zones have been created on the beach to provide space for each target group in a safe way.

Beach zoning for wind and water sports

What are the possibilities on the beach? And where and when? Where, for example, can you kitesurf, SUP, blokart or go horse riding? Or where can dogs run free? Below you will find the maps and an explanation of the zoning:

Up-to-date information about the rules of play for each zone can be found locally.
