best cycling route through Scheveningen?

by jennifer_uk

Hi. I've just come back from my 3rd cycling trip when I've cycled up the coast. Each time I go through Scheveningen I lose the route signs (North Sea route), and I always end up in heavy traffic. Can anyone give me precise directions please (South to North).
Thanks a lot.

There's a Scheveningen map with clickable detailed maps at: http://www.allesoverscheveningen.nl/plattegrond/index.htm

The southern part of your route coincides with the local Westduinroute, see http://www.gpstracks.nl/index.php?fietsroutes-zuidholland (and press the KAART button).

If PJ's tip doesn't work for you, let me know. I'll cycle that part for you on a nice day as long as it isn't too far. I have a very old and rusty bike!

Travel Tips for Scheveningen

Pier Scheveningen

by Nathalie_B

Pier Scheveningen is not the biggest attraction of the area, but definitely the place that suffered the most.
The Pier used to be infront of the Kurhaus but was removed to where it is now because it was spoiling the view from the hotel. It makes no profits and has no money for renovations, although the owners plan to build a hotel on the, what they call, island.

It costs one Euro to walk on the pier all the way to the Bungy jumping tower and the restaurant and casino. On the way there you'll have a chance to take pictures from the balcony, to shop in suvenir stores while you're kids are enjoying lego games.

Churches

by bugulma

In spite of Scheveningen is not big town there are several churches. So the church life is everywhere. There are some classic church that are usual in style, but some are very modern like that one you see on the picture. It is situated in Jurrian Kokstraat.

Signs on the beach

by myriam_c

On the beach you will see big signs, picturing a sheep, a ball, a doll, ... The purpose of these signs is that small children don't get lost so easily. If the parents show them at which sign they are sitting, the child will easily find its way back.

Day & Night

by RoyJava

Scheveningen is a truely beach resort even in wintertime. And it is quite expensive so it should be waisted money for not bringing your own suitcase and bags ... For summertime bring your beachwear, lightweight cotton clothing, a nice shirt for the evenings and proper shoes when you want to visit the Casino (casual is fine, no sport clothes).

Ofcourse the modern times brought some changes. February, March, April and May may be the driest months. June and October are typically wet months. Though it can be opposite of this info, too! So donot forget to bring a raincoat and umbrella and a sweater for in the evenings (when freezingly cold).

For wintertime it can be realy cold and windy, so be prepared for it. Sunglasses, sun-protection cream, tissues, (wet towels). Pharmacy is open on Saturday & Sunday (see any phonebook). In Scheveningen there are some great shops to buy photo equipment, films are about the same price, and for digital photographs you can find plenty of digital photo-shops.

local voltage - 220V AC 50Hz It is well-known there are more sunny hours on the coast than there are inland. So >>>
bathing clothes, towel and sun-tan
a cooler bag for drinks (going to the parks, dunes and beach)
You can get a map of The Hague at the police stations.

There are a lot of sports to do in Scheveningen, get some informations so you will know what to bring ... area code > 31 70

tipping
Scheveningen loves its tips (even not necessary), a 15% service charge is normally added to the bill. So it is customary to leave small change, and to give small tips to porters and taxi drivers.
