The beautiful weather is coming again and then we all want to go to the beach en masse. A wonderful day at the beach, the perfect place to have a drink in one of the many beach bars and to enjoy the sun. From the Wadden Islands in the north to the Zeeland beaches in the south, the Netherlands has no less than 250 kilometers of beautiful sandy beach with beautiful dunes. So whether you like a relaxed, hip, nude, sporty or family beach, you will always find what you are looking for!
Scheveningen is one of the more famous beaches in the Netherlands. Many Dutch people and tourists visit here every year. These many visitors to Scheveningen have to park somewhere, which entails enormous parking nuisance for residents of Scheveningen. Residents often cannot park their car during busy periods. The parking pressure in streets such as the einpostduin, Jongeneelstraat, Pellenaerstraat, Harteveltstraat and Gevers Deynootweg (near the Oranjeflats) is extremely high. To encourage visitors to no longer park in the streets, but simply in the parking garages and designated parking areas, the municipality of The Hague recently started a trial.
The above streets have recently become a permit holder zone. Anyone who has a parking permit for the Scheveningen/Duindorp area may park in this area. The municipality makes it clear with signs that the situation here has changed and that the parking spaces are only intended for permit holders. If you still want to park in this permit holder zone, you have to open your wallet. You can park here for €50 per day. You can only buy a day ticket, so paying per minute or per hour is no longer possible. If you park here without a permit and without a day ticket, you may receive an additional assessment or a wheel clamp. In the worst case, your car will be towed away. The test of the municipality The Hague will last one year and there will be an interim evaluation.
