Kite surfing

Kite surfing is becoming more and more popular and so of course you’ll also see them at the beach of Scheveningen. It’s a great sight to see the kite surfers challenge the different natural elements. You’ll find kite surfers the whole year round at the Noordelijk Havenhoofd (northern side of the harbour inlet). During the summer you can also find some nice beach pavilions at this part of the beach. Unfortunately it’s not yet possible to hire kite surfing equipment.
