The Hague is a major seaside city in the Randstad which features a wonderful beachfront that has been enjoyed by Europeans for years. You’ll find not only Dutch beachcombers here but Danish, Belgian and German tourists in droves. During the summer months, thousands of people crowd onto the shore to enjoy the warm sandy beaches, ample sunshine, coastal breezes, and the many tourist attractions the area is famous for.
Dozens of cafes and restaurants dot the 3km boardwalk, which continues south into a natural area with dikes, dunes and wildlife. On the north end of the beach, the famous Scheveningen Pier, which extends nearly 400 meters into the North Sea, has been an important landmark since about 1900 as featured in the ‘Historical Footage’ video far below.
