Scheveningen is part of The Hague and is located by the sea. It is a wonderful place to get a breath of fresh air in the autumn, to walk in the winter, to pick up the first rays of sunshine in the spring or to enjoy the beach and the many terraces in the summer. A beautiful place in the Netherlands that is a top destination for a vacation in the Netherlands during every season!
The pier is the landmark and the heart of Scheveningen. Here you can do all kinds of things like shopping and eating but also do something active and exciting like ziplining, bungee jumping from 60 meters high or take surfing lessons. A round in the Ferris wheel that offers you a magnificent view is of course also part of the package.
Food & drinks
Around the Pier you can enjoy the beach and the sea, especially when the sun is shining. From the Pier you can walk straight into a beach bar or terrace on the Boulevard. Almost every restaurant has a daily menu for a fixed price. If you like the menu, look no further because the restaurants almost all offer the same thing for the same price. If you just want to enjoy the nice weather, walk into one of the many bars on the beach and enjoy a wide range of delicious cocktails.
Do you like to get up early and wake up to a nice breeze? These hip bars also offer a full breakfast, both in a well-stocked burgundy way and in the trendy healthy way. Be sure to check it out!
The South Beach – The Harbour
The beach and boulevard of Scheveningen are very popular and busy in the summer. Do you prefer to sit a little more at ease? Then go to the Zuiderstrand. This beach is located between Scheveningen and Kijkduin. The harbor of Scheveningen is a nice place to visit, especially on Sundays.
In the morning the fishermen go out to sea. On Friday is the return and then their catch is unloaded and sold. There are also many restaurants and terraces here and it is the place to book a cruise on the North Sea or a short tour of the harbor itself.
