Scheveningen is a coastal resort town about a 15 minute drive from the historic center of The Hague. During the treasured summer months, fair-skinned Dutch flock to this expansive beach for suntanning and fun. Attractions include a boardwalk, restaurants, snack kiosks and bars plus a giant Ferris wheel and the Scheveningen Pier. But don’t go home at dusk. Watch a marvelous sunset and then indulge in the nightlife at clubs or the Holland Casino Scheveningen. If you are really hearty – or just crazy – take the plunge during Nieuwjaarsduik, a swim event on New Year’s Day.
