  • Beach

    We were in Scheveningen just once, in a sunny day of late August, when beaches in Portugal are starting the second half season. I was not impressed - the beach is wide and well equipped, but the rough sea and dark water didn't invite us (nor anyone else). I know - it's the risk of a first impression, but if that was the look in August...

    Yes, the trams can be dangerous. Their tracks cross roads, bicycle paths and sidewalks. For all their bulk, they’re quite quiet because they’re electric. They have their own traffic lights and often have the right-of-way. If you’re in the way of a tram, they’ll ring their bell at you. If you ignore the bell, you’ll hear a horn blaring at you. You...

    Parking "Scheveningen" ???

    by RoyJava Updated Oct 16, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yep,... parking your car in Scheveningen is like HORROR!
    To park freely your car, that is totally impossible. You have to pay every day from 10.00 until 24.00 hrs. and even until 02.00 hrs at some places. It's annoying you have to pay every 30 minutes, or every hour, so come back in time! Otherwise you will get a ticket for sure!
    Unfortunately ...

    Unique Suggestions: That is why it is told you better seek for a garage!
    Most of the parking garages are open for the full 24 hours. 7 Days a week.

    * Parking Scheveningen Bad (Zwolsestraat) - 2030 places
    * Parking Nieuwe Parklaan (Nieuwe Parklaan) - 570 places
    * Parking Kurhaus (Gevers Deynootweg) 250 places
    * Zwartepad - 415 places
    * Strandweg (Boulevard) - 800 places

    Fun Alternatives: ...

    Psst, come some closer you ...
    Wanna know a little secret ?
    Find the Zeekant, just behind the Boulevard ...

    It is allowed to park there for 2 hours!
    And it is a remarkable fact for not many people know this small street ...
    So you can enjoy a Boulevard walk for 2 whole hours ...
    Keep it for yourself, as long as it last *LOL*

Scheveningen What to Pack

  • Day & Night

    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)....

  • Blown away...
