We wanted to see what a seaside resort here would be like, so we stayed on the tram, past The Hague and reached Scheveningen. It is a very highly developed area, with numerous hotels and apartments and a very long, sandy beach.
All along the beach there are numerous terraces with restaurants and bars. One hotel, called the Kurhaus, is a nice classical building - it must have been one of the first to be built here, but unfortunately it has been surrounded by a lot of buildings that aren't as nice.
We had a coffee and an ice cream at a place called "Summertime" - it was pretty good and we had a view of the sea and the enormous pier (which includes a bungie jumping attraction - I was tempted, but didn't do it.
We walked down to the sea and stuck our hands in the water. Cold! But there were plenty of people in bathing suits playing volleyball and hanging out on the beach. After that, we spent about another hour wandering around the community. Some parts were really nice. Finally we worked our way back to the tram line and made it back to The Hague where we had dinner.
