One of the best perks of living in The Hague is definitely the beach. Although the weather rarely allows sunbathing, you will make no mistake to go for a short walk, coffee, or dinner. I prefer Scheveningen beach. It is usually more lively (and extremely crowded on a hot summer day!) than the other beaches around here. I especially love going there after work. For a few hours I feel like a tourist, drinking cocktails and watching the sunset. The summer, of course, is the best time to go, but I very much enjoy going to Scheveningen on weekends, drifting away and shutting off for a moment.
