Katwijk aan Zee is a seaside resort located on the North Sea at the mouth of the Oude Rijn. It is situated in the municipality of Katwijk and the province of South Holland.
The name "Katwijk" probably has its origins in the name of a Germanic tribe called the Chatten . The Dutch word "wijk" means "area", so the name probably meant something like "the Chatti area".
