Scheveningen has over 4700 parking spots. The parking spots are located in car parks and the parking lots.
Scheveningen is enjoying the summer. Whereas many visit the beach and the pavilions, a little further people are working on a beautiful new boulevard. Scheveningen will remain well accessible by car, public transport and bike, during the work as well.
In order to keep the beach, the boulevard and the pavilions well accessible, a 500-meter temporary boulevard has bee created around the work site (between Sealife and de Schuitenweg).
The best way to reach the resort is by public transport or moped/bike. If you’re traveling by car, please take busy traffic into account. Due to the work to the boulevard, the ‘Strandweg’ between the ‘Scheveningseslag’ and the ‘Schuitenweg’ is closed for traffic. Therefore, through traffic across the boulevard is no longer possible. In general, you can take the following routes:
• Scheveningen-Bad via de Van Alkemadelaan en Zwolsestraat;
• Scheveningen-Haven via de Houtrustweg of Statenlaan.
Check the map with the advised routes to the boulevard
In order to smoothly guide the traffic in Scheveningen on busy days in the summer, the municipality deploys additional traffic wardens. For proper handling of all traffic, motorists are advised to turn of their navigation system in Scheveningen and to follow the directions of the traffic wardens.
The parking lot at the ‘Seinpostduin’ is closed because it falls within the work field of the boulevard. Therefore, a temporary parking lot has been constructed on the beach next to the harbor. This lot provides space for about 400 passenger cards. All car parks in Scheveningen and attractions, such as Sealife remain accessible.
Scheveningen is very well-accessible by public transport. From stations Hollands Spoor and Centraal you can get on the following tram- and bus lines:
• from Centraal station to Scheveningen Noorderstrand: tram 9 and bus 22;
• from station Hollands Spoor to Scheveningen Noorderstrand: tram 1 and 9;

Car sharing is good for the environment, it improves the quality of the air and it saves you a lot of money in the process.
Car sharing is becoming increasingly popular. When car sharing, several people use one or more cars in turns. As an individual you can share a car with neighbors or acquaintances. But you can also turn to the organization Wheels4all.
Another option is to purchase a subscription from a commercial organization. In The Hague, these are Greenwheels and ConnectCar. Cars provided by these organizations are always located at the same, reserved parking spots in the city.
Business car sharing
For business traffic we have Mobilitymixx. Of course, you can also rent a car from a car rental company.
Car sharing may save you a lot of money. If you drive less than 15000 kilometers per year, shared car use could be cheaper than having your own car. In January 2008, over 900 people in The Hague were using a shared car.
