The municipality of Schagen is partly located in the West Frisian region and consists of the city of Schagen and the coastal towns of Callantsoog, Petten, Groote Keeten and Sint Maartenszee. There are many flower bulb fields between the coast and the city of Schagen, which provide beautifully coloured views in spring.
The beaches are there to be enjoyed. The 14-kilometre-long coast line consists of safe, clean and beautiful beaches. The rich history of the region is also impressive. It has many developments around the coast, the city and the countryside, which are still visible in many places.
The distances in the municipality of Schagen are small. A day at the beach is easily combined with a visit to the city of Schagen. Cycling enthusiasts can indulge themselves with the many cycling routes in the area, but hikers will not get bored here either. Over the beach, through the dunes, through the various nature reserves, the possibilities are endless.
