THE FLYING PIG Beach Hostel Noordwijk

Why not visit our smoker friendly Beach Hostel and chill on the beach for a couple of days.

Besides beach life, The Beach Hostel has a lot to offer as a: Outdoor activity Hostel and a cultural jump off point

Beach life:

50m from the 13 km golden sand beach and in the middle of town beach life is guaranteed.
Noordwijk is booming, you can work on your suntan at one of the lively beach clubs or if you want to chill find yourself a tranquil piece of beach.
When the sun goes down you can go for an afternoon beer in one of the many beach bars or sit with your bum in the sand and you can see the most spectacular sunsets.
All over town the bars and restaurants will bring out terraces, but the place to be is "De Grent"
Get a front row seat and you are settled for a good night of people watching, or get dressed up , and give the people on the terraces something to look at.

There are several beach parties, tourist markets and street festivals organised in Noordwijk, and every second week during the high season, there are firework shows on the beach.

Noordwijk is a bleu flag beach resort, which means it is a highly rated beach resort in regards to cleanliness, life aid and the condition of the beach and the seawater.

See the tourist information chapter on this site for more info about bars, restaurants and "Hot" places.


Outdoor Activity Hostel:
Situated in a unique area of Holland, Noordwijk has a lot to offer to the "active" backpacker.
At the moment Noordwijk is one of the hottest "kite surfing" places in Europe, but our beaches are suitable for most other kinds of surfing as well: windsurfing, board surfing, skim boarding and boogie boarding.
You can surf from March until October but because of the storms, spring and fall are the best seasons.

Wild dunes, woodlands, and flower fields surround Noordwijk, you just have to put on a couple inline skates or jump on a mountain bike and start to explore a unspoiled piece of Holland.

Remote golden sand beaches are inviting you to go for a beach ride, so rent a horse at one of the many stables.
The Beach Hostel organizes all kinds of beach activities such as, Beach Volleyball, beach soccer, Power kiting and ones in a while an illegal beach party.

See the tourist information chapter on this site for more info of all the things to do.
