Treasures of the sea

Noordwijk is the perfect place to find unusual beach treasures: the most common are shells of the sub truncate surf clam and American razor clam. There are many other beautiful shells, such as cockles, wedge shells, Baltic clams and whelks. When the wind blows from the east little horn shells (like spiral staircases) get washed up.
