Noordwijk  is a small town in South Holland. Noordwijk divides into two parts, Noordwijk aan Zee (the old fishing settlement, and now more touristy and with good shopping)on the dunes, and Noordwijk Binnen (the older, historic village) slightly further in land.
Take a train to Leiden Centraal Station. From the bus platform at the train station take bus 20 or 21 to Noordwijk.
As with all small towns in Holland, a bike is by far the best way to get around.
