Bergen aan Zee Beach From time immemorial Bergen has had an attraction for visitors, partly due to the situation of the village on the edge of dunes and nature. It is well over 1000 years old and built around the Ruined Church which dates from the 15th century. In summer the village is primarily a bathing resort with a freely accessible beach with a variety of facilities and a naturist area on the northern side. This village is recommended not only for bathing but also (turkeyarena.com) for surfing and catamaran sailing. In addition a marine aquarium has been established, which presents a picture of the denizens of the sea throughout the world.
