The Hague is the only large Dutch city on the sea. Just a stone’s throw from the historic city centre, you’ll find an eleven-kilometre long beach. Step aboard a tram and within fifteen minutes you can breathe in the fresh sea air. In The Hague, you’re never far from the sea.
In The Hague, the beach is the ideal place to take a break from the hectic pace of life. Take a long walk along the water’s edge or hop on a bike and cycle through the dunes. Stroll along the newly renovated Pier or walk along the Boulevard to the harbour in Scheveningen. Enjoy the grand views, clear you mind and let yourself be inspired by new ideas. At the seaside, it always feels like you’re on holiday.
And the beach in The Hague offers you unexpected extras: it’s the place for sports like beach volleyball and kite surfing. Indeed, it’s the best surfing beach on the North Sea. With good waves and a laid back atmosphere.
Scheveningen offers you all the ingredients for a pleasant day trip, with two large theatres, a museum and all sorts of big attractions. With more than fifty beach cafés and dozens of restaurants and hotels, Scheveningen has much to offer to lovers of fine food. There’s fresh fish every day of the year, so it’s yours for the asking: straight from the boat this morning, on your dinner plate this evening. How much fresher could it be?
