The wooded state-owned dunes, covering a total of 157 hectares, are typical of De Haan-Wenduine. By virtue of their location, at just 150 to 700 metres from the sea, their forestry importance cannot be overstated. The trees are engaged in constant battle with the elements – salt and seawind – which are not kindly disposed towards them. Which means keeping the trees and woodlands untouched is quite a challenge in its own right. The woodlands are traversed by a string of paths and tracks. The forested De Haan-Centrum-Vosseslag dune area also enjoys renown as a hiking and natural wildlife resort. “Kijkuit” and the “Zandpanne” are natural reserves well worth a visit.
