Try to enjoy the Monster beach. In the summertime you will not be the only trying to reach the beach and at times the village will be closed down by the traffic police, just because it's one big stand-still.
To the North you can see the Scheveningen Pier in the distance and to the South, you see the industrial contours of the Hook of Holland.
The beach at Monster is a real familybeach. No busy trendy boulevard with cafe's, bars, restaurants and touristshops. Just a row of dunes with behind it the sea and a stretch of sand. Even in the peakseason there's space on the parkingfield and on the beach itself - of course. On the beach are two "strandtenten" (beachcafetaria) that provide some treats and drinks, but ... it's maybe even more fun to take a picknickbasket with you

Typical Dutch: The Mill.
The present "De Vier Winden" (The Four Winds) mills dates from1882. It's not the first Monster mill. Already in the 13th century there was a mill at this location.
