About the apartment
The 2nd harbour of Scheveningen, constructed around 1930, is connected via a narrow passageway known as 'the pipe' to the 1st harbour. In the surrounding area, many smokehouses and fishmongers settled. After the Second World War the importance of fishing gradually disappeared and the smaller vessels vanished. Since then the 2nd harbour has transformed into a recreational and tourist area, attracting visitors year-round. The harbor also has become a popular stop over for The Ocean Race, a yacht race around the world that takes place every three years. Scheveningen's Northern and Southern beaches, with the Southern beach being quieter and within walking distance from the apartment, have attained a Blue Flag certification, a European standard for clean and safe marinas and beaches. We dare to say that there is no place in Europe where visitors can find this unique blend of city culture and beach life within such a small space.
