Wassenaarse Slag is a beach to the north of The Hague. Because the dunes between Scheveningen and Kijkduin are a protected water gathering ground, access to the sea from Wassenaar is limited. A single road leads to the beach at Wassenaarse Slag, where several beach clubs and other facilities can be found during the summer months. Nevertheless, Wassenaarse Slag is a very quiet beach, a striking contrast to the boulevards of the typical North Sea resort.
Meijendel is the largest interconnected dune area in South Holland. The beautiful nature reserve extends between Scheveningen, The Hague and Wassenaar, and consists primarily of open dune landscape, lakes, forests and kilometres of long sandy beaches. In the centre of the nature reserve is a visitor centre owned by drinking water company Dunea, Meyendel pancake house and Monkeybos playground. The numerous cycle, hiking and riding paths make the dunes at Meijendel the perfect place to enjoy the nature of the Netherlands just a stone's throw away from the city.
