FAQ

General questions

  • Accessibility by public transport

A bus runs from Beverwijk station to Wijk aan Zee, which takes about 10 minutes. From then on it is a short walk to the beach!

  • Accessibility by car

Wijk aan Zee is close to the motorway and is therefore easily accessible by car. In addition, there is a large, FREE car park, where there is ample parking all year round.

  • Accessibility with a wheelchair

Wijk aan Zee is very wheelchair friendly. There are concrete slabs up to the entrance of our pavilion, and even partly on the beach. Do you want to go blokarting? That is also possible! Please contact us for this, so that we can assist you as good as possible.

  • Vegetarian food and dietary requirements

There are various options for guests / groups with special dietary requirements. If you indicate this on time, the kitchen can take it into account!

Questions about company outing with blokarting

  • Can blokarting be done all year round?

Blokarting can be organised all year round! On the activity beach it is allowed to organise activities in both summer and winter months.

  • Can blokarting always take place?

We have to deal with a number of factors for blokarting:

Tide 

Blokarting is only possible when it is low tide. Only then is the beach hard and wide enough for this activity.

Wind

Sufficient wind is also required for blokarting (minimum wind force 4). There should also not be too much wind, because of the light material and especially for the safety of the participants.

Rain/thunder

When it rains, blokarting is still possible, provided that it is not so intense that the sand becomes too soft. If thunderstorms are predicted, blokarting is not possible.

We look at all weather forecasts two days in advance. We will inform you about this by e-mail.

  • Is everyone able/allowed to blokart?

In principle, anyone can blokart and no experience is required. However, there are a few exceptions:

Age

Blokarting is allowed for everyone aged 12 and older (regardless of height / weight / etc.).

Injuries

The blokart is actually only operated with the arms. With this you steer and pull the sail. This also makes the activity possible for the disabled. For people with a shoulder or arm injury, it is best to contact us to look at the possibilities.

Pregnancy

Although blokarting is a very safe activity, it is not recommended to blokart during pregnancy.
