Scheveningen is The Hague’s largest seaside resort. It not only has a boulevard, but also a harbour. The boulevard on itself is a sight to see. Long beaches, lots of beachclubs/restaurants, attractions and even art on the boulevard.
The pier is the most famous attraction of Scheveningen. For a long time it was in a poor state, but over the last few years it has been renovated and it houses a lot of restaurants, suites and even a float centre to relax. For a bit more adrenaline and excitement you can bungyjump of off the Pier or zipline over the ocean. If that is a bit much, there is also a ferriswheel which will give you the best and most amazing view of the city and the ocean.
