It’s been a long time ago since I was last here in Scheveningen, also known as the beach of The Hague. That was in 2011 with Blondine. We had lunch in The Hague, then we went shopping in the afternoon and we closed the day with a dinner at a beach club in Scheveningen. 5 years ago. Time flew out the window so fast, and now Blondine is gone...
I am soothed though that she left me with lots of beautiful memories to remember, and I am glad that I was able to document many of our time together here in this blog. They are precious to me and will always be.
So the other weekend Dutchman and I were here in Scheveningen. We had lovely blue skies weather. It was a beautiful day.
I have heard that the ‘De Pier’ in Scheveningen is now under a new management so I insisted that Dutchman and I visit the place, and I was surprised to see that it has now become a Food Boulevard extending partly to the roofdeck. The Bungy (for bungee jumping) is still there and a new attraction is being assembled together, the Ferris Wheel on the sea which opened a week later.
Wow, I am fascinated with all the major changes, considering that this property was in a terribly derelict state the last time I was here. It is a transformation! Although it seems that a few of the spaces in the Food Boulevard area are still waiting for tenants. I do hope they get leased out very soon. Perhaps they are already, and the new tenants just need to move in anytime soon.
The grumpy Dutchman on the other hand was not impressed at all, “Bah, Scheveningen is still a circus, it’s for the masses.”
This is so typical for this picky Dutchman, what can I do? We managed though to lay down and relaxed a bit on a lounge bed on the roofdeck, which he really enjoyed very much, so he might not mean it =)
Tip: Yup, there are free lounge beds at the end of the roofdeck. Plus the views from the bars, cafes and restaurants here at the Pier are simply stunning! Panorama views of the beach and the boulevard. Come here!

I enjoyed taking these pictures, and I hope you enjoy them too.

You can go up the roofdeck for the beach and boulevard views.
The Kurhaus on Scheveningen Boulevard.
Lounging here at the roofdeck =)
It is a great place to walk around and enjoy the beach views, but it can get very windy here.
Lots of dining opportunities with a view here at the Pier. I would love to come back!
We would have wanted to eat here at this terrace but we have already reserved dinner at a different restaurant near the Kurhaus.
