Egmond aan Zee : Michelin's recommendations
This small seaside resort is in the middle of the dunes. At the foot of the lighthouse, the statue of a lion symbolises the heroism of Lieutenant Van Speijk who, near Anvers, on February 5, 1831 blew up his gunboat and all its occupants rather than let it fall into the hands of the Belgians.
