Hiking trail Past the seagull colony

This walking route starts at Den Hoorn and goes past the seagull colony on the beach and the dunes. The Westerduinen are very low in calcium, but have rough vegetation. This makes it the ideal place for breeding birds.

We have mapped out a 4.5-kilometre walking route that allows you to enjoy the landscape to the full. Dogs are welcome on this route (on a lead).

  • Length: approx. 4.5 km
  • Estimated time: 60 minutes
  • Pram and wheelchair: not suitable
  • Dogs: allowed if kept on a lead
  • Accessible: all year round
  • Tip: boots may be required

A GPX file can be used on the phone with apps like Komoot, Garmin Connect and Strava.
