Popular Beaches – The Hague has several public beaches that draw visitors from all over The Netherlands and beyond, particularly German tourists. The top three shorelines are the Scheveningen Beach, Zandmotor, and Zuiderstrand.
Scheveningen Beach is the most famous beach resort in Holland, with vast beaches, a large number of beach bars, and a unique promenade, pier and harbor. Zandmotor is a nearby large artificial beach, created by depositing huge amounts of sand from the harbor and home of a yearly kite competition. Zuiderstrand is located right behind the dunes to the south and is known among locals as het stille strand – ‘the quiet beach’. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the sun and sea.
These beaches are perfect for a day out with family and friends, and offer dozens of activities such as swimming, sunbathing, surfing, and kiteboarding. They are also home to unique restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy delicious food and drinks while taking in the beautiful views of the sea.
