It was very relaxing walk along the North sea in Scheveningen, but there was a very cold wind and we were freezing. Lucky there is a lot of coffee bars with heating and warm drinks. Also the color of the sea is not blue, it's some kind of grey.

We had one cold but sunny day, and one rainy, windy, very cold day. Loaded with restaurants and bars. Even as cold as it was, surfers abounded. A great place to hang out and people watch. Weather is too unpredictable in April, wait till Mid May.

A super place to people watch as everyone likes to walk along the promenade in the evening. Loads of restaurants along the way serving everything from steaks to fish to pancakes.

I've been to the pier off season where it is quiet and open. However, close your eyes and imagine a beautiful sunny day and you can feel like you are kid a again. I love the beaches on the North Sea. They are less crowded and the water is less polluted, but colder. There are many touristy restaurants along the... More

The Scheveningen promenade was recently rejuvenated. After many months of upheaval it was completed last year. I think the new promenade is superb. In winter there are the permanent restaurants and bars and shops. In summer there are more restaurants and bars. The beach is cleaned every morning in the summer season. The outdoor beelden-aan-zee are superb. Interactive art with... More

The promenade/boulevard is a very nice place to stroll. When you are in love, with your family, with friends or just alone. It has enough space for everyone. There are places where you can sit and watch the sea and other people. You can buy something to drink and/or to eat in the several stalls on it. And you can... More

This area feels like Venice Beach and Santa Monica Pier but less tacky! There are so many restaurants and things to do. Inside the pier, there are many, many food vendors and other market stalls. It's so bustling and I absolutely loved it!
