    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Domburg is a busy place all during season and parking is well-regulated. You can use one of the parking spaces near the beach (only a dune hill separates it from the beach itself). It costs € 1,40 per hour and you can pay with PIN card or have some small change ready.

Domburg Warnings and Dangers

  • Summertime rush

    There is a Dutch saying: You can walk on the heads.At times that certainly is true for the popular main street where it seems all traffic wants to pass at the same moment (including two public transportation buses per hour).It's a busy mix of walker, cyclist, cars and who knows what that squeezes its way through the narrow streets.

  • Rules on the beach

  • Don't walk among the dune foliage

    The sign says: These dunes are natural habitat and they protect the land against the sea. Trespassing causes damage!Further more it states the Criminal Law Act 461.This law counts for all of the dunes along the Dutch coast. So better be well aware not to venture outside paths when warnings like these are up. I must also add that I hardly ever, if...

It currently looks to be a restaurant, so I hope to return...
