About Wijk aan Zee
Wijk aan Zee is one of the best-kept secrets of the North Sea coast. The seaside location offers the widest sandbeach of the Netherlands and is located next to the beautiful dune reserve of Noord-Holland. Wijk aan Zee offers a lot of possibilities for recreation and relaxation. The open dune area is an excellent location if you love to walk or cycle. The beach is well-known as a (kite)surf spot. The village of Wijk aan Zee has been the host of the Tata Steel Chess Tournament since 1968. The town is inextricably linked to the Tata Steel Chess Tournament.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, public attendance will not be possible during this year’s edition of the Tata Steel Chess Tournament. There will be an extensive live online programme for everyone who enjoys chess. Follow our international live stream via our website.
