What do the flags on the beach mean?
A kilometre-long beach in your backyard, that's Scheveningen for The Hague. A lovely place to be four seasons a year. With a glass of Chardonnay on a lounge sofa in the sun or with a sailing jacket full of wind. Whichever season it is, the effect of the fresh breeze remains unchanged; a relaxed, rosy and satisfied holiday feeling.
For a sunset dinner, Scheveningen is perfect. The fish comes fresher than fresh straight from the sea and you can taste it. Enjoy a special culinary evening out not only at the beach bars on the boulevard and the restaurants in Scheveningen. The fish restaurants in the Scheveningen Harbour also provide a dynamic setting for an atmospheric dinner.Barbecuing on the beach? There are special rules for that.
Sun, sea, good food, music: the beach is a perfect place for a night out! During the summer months, not a weekend goes by without a fun beach party in one of Scheveningen's beach clubs. At the Circustheater, you can enjoy the biggest Joop van den Ende musicals and the funniest cabaret shows. And in the casino you will always have a fun evening!
Come face to face with sharks, piranhas, rays and seahorses in SEA LIFE Scheveningen. Immerse yourself in the world of Lego in Legoland. Visit Muzee Scheveningen, where you will learn everything about the history of the old fishing village. Or visit an exhibition in one of the most special museums in the Netherlands, Beelden aan Zee, half hidden in the dunes. These various attractions and museums in Scheveningen are also a great alternative when it rains, especially for children.
Relax and party: welcome to the Zwarte Pad. A quirky and cosy beach on the dunes on the north side of the Scheveningen Pier. On this intimate stretch of beach you will find about 10 beach bars. All with their own vibe. Think of a sleek beach club like Barborossa, the licentious Indigo or the always cosy and no-nonsense Buiten.
The Noordboulevard lies exactly between the Zwarte pad and the Pier beach. This section of beach, on the boulevard with shops, kiosks and Foodhall Scheveningen, has a vast beach with a wide view. Everything is brand new, as the redevelopment was completed 2022. It is usually a lot quieter here than at the Pier and the Middenboulevard.
