Nautilus by the Sea
Welcome to Nautilus by the Sea, the most sustainable pavilion in the Netherlands. Nautilus stands on the spot where the beloved Beach Pavilion De Schelp once stood. From 1978 – 2018, De Schelp was a household name in Egmond and the surrounding area for conviviality, food and drink.
Nautilus by the Sea is open 12 months a year, every day. Experience the ultimate beach experience at Nautilus by the Sea!
We have the ability to accommodate large groups (up to 500 people) in addition to a top-notch restaurant. The groups coming so far are very diverse. From corporate events (trainings, presentations, company parties, brainstorming sessions, workshops and meetings) to parties that deserve a unique location. Are you looking for a venue for a party/meeting? Then choose the unique combination of beach & (top) restaurant.
Nautilus, like its predecessor, is an approachable and welcoming pavilion. Here you will feel welcome and enjoy sun, sea, beach and delicious food and drinks. Nautilus is open 12 months a year, every day. Experience the ultimate beach rhythm at Nautilus!
Egmond aan Zee has been a fishing village for more than 1,000 years. In the year 977, a rich farmer from Egmond Binnen had houses built by the sea for poor families. They were fishermen who had to donate 10 percent of their catch to Egmond Binnen Abbey. In exchange, they were allowed to live in one of the houses for free.
At the beginning of this century, tourism began to develop. People came mostly for the healthy sea air. From the big cities, many young children came to stay in one of the colony houses.
Egmond aan Zee has become a bustling village loved by people, who love conviviality.
Nautilus by the Sea is located near the central shopping street with a large parking lot on the plateau. Also nearby is the boathouse of the Royal Dutch Rescue Brigade. On the south side under a canopy has been built for years on the Pinck. This is a flat-bottomed fishing vessel as it was used for centuries in Egmond to take to the sea directly from the beach. It took years to turn a pile of logs into this beautiful authentic sailing ship. In the spring of 2007, the Pinck was christened. In good weather, the men sometimes go out sailing.
If you walk down the beautiful beach from this point, you will come to our pavilion, which has become a fixed beacon for many people to enjoy 100% since 1974.
