Scheveningen is the most popular sea-side resort in Holland.
The resort of Scheveningen is only a 15-minute tram-ride from the centre of The Hague.
Take a breath of fresh air on the beach, go strolling along the bay or go shopping at the Palace Promenade.
Modern amenities include the Sea Life Center where visitors can walk in sea-through
tunnels for underwater views of sharks, stingrays and other forms of sea life.
The town has swallowed up the original fishing village of Scheveningen Haven, which has still managed
to maintain some of its traditional fishing industry. The south side of the harbour is the departure
point for tourists' fishing trips.
Museum Scheveningen gives its visitors a lively picture of the history of this former
fishing village. Seaside activities and fishing were dominant factors in everyday life and gave the
village a unique character.
There is a small Zee Museum of marine biology which houses the exhibits of
marine life from around the world.
