About Seaside Celebrations -

Since 1818, the fishing village has developed into a vibrant bathing resort for the wider public. The Hague is the only city in Northwest Europe with a beach. A historical city centre and eleven kilometres of beach create a unique combination that may definitely become more widespread. Admire the Meisje met de Parel (Girl with the Pearl Earring), get in the tram or on the bike and 15 minutes later you dive into the sea… that’s only possible in The Hague! Feest aan Zee puts Scheveningen, the beach and the sea in the spotlight for the entire year. All the residents and visitors are invited to come to the sea even more often in 2018.

City by the sea

Walking along the waterline or parading on the boulevard. Cycling through Nationaal Park Hollandse Duinen (national dunes park of Holland) or riding the big Ferris wheel. In Scheveningen you can go to attractions, museums, events and go out every day. Whether you like something quiet or active, Scheveningen has something for everyone. On top of it all, it's the best surf spot in the North Sea and the place for exercising on the beach. You can order super fresh fish in the more than fifty beach pavilions and dozens of restaurants. It’s always a blast in the bathing resort and the sea is always nearby in The Hague.
