The Hague and Scheveningen: perfect weekend getaway


For my boyfriend's birthday, I suprised him with a weekend at Scheveningen/The Hague at the Netherlands. Let me tell you all about it.

Scheveningen

Scheveningen is the beach place next to The Hague. Walking on the esplanade gives you a nice overview on the beach and the sea. You can wander on the pier and at the end there is a lighthouse that you can escalate. We watched the sunset with a cocktail in hand.


The Hague

I was very much suprised by this city. There are a lot of great sights, cosy paths alongside the canals and many awesome bars. I loved the view on 'The Hofvijver', which is a pond surrounded by pretty buildings.



It was the first time I booked a hotel stay via Secret Escapes and I must stay it was a good experience. Everything went smoothly and when comparing the price to other sites, I discovered it really was the cheapest. Unfortunately we didn't have a view on the water from our room, next time I'll book the Ocean Suite. :) I always tend to love a hotel when there is a capacious breakfast buffet full of good food, which, lucky for me, was the case.


Foodsharing at SALT

After reading great reviews, I had booked a table at the restaurant of the hotel: SALT. You get the option to have a small portion to taste, to have a normal one as a meal and to have a big one for sharing. We decided to have multiple small dishes so that we could taste everything. Yummy.
