Marie visiting Strandpaviljoen Zuid
Beach seasons' kick-off
Wondering where The Hague’s inhabitants go to enjoy a relaxing day at the beach? Chances are they’re unwinding at Strandpaviljoen Zuid on the Zuiderstrand – hidden behind the dunes and far away from the crowdy boulevard. Is it for a coffee break, an ice cold beer or a can of sangria? Long balmy evenings around the barbecue, dancing to the DJ’s music or even getting married? Zuid offers space for various occasions. Marie went to visit Strandpaviljoen Zuid to celebrate its opening and the start of beach season.
From early morning until late at night, you can go to Strandpaviljoen Zuid for breakfast, lunch and diner. In its international kitchen, Zuid works as much as possible with natural products; regional ingredients are the guiding principles. Choose the healthy breakfast bowl in the morning, enjoy an Asian wrap during lunchtime or treat yourself with the French free-range chicken in the evening, which is roasted on the spit. The drinking menu also offers plenty of choice: enjoy coffee, a freshly squeezed juice, one of the organic wines or – of course – a Marie-Stella-Maris water.
The relaxed atmosphere that prevails at Zuid is created both by the public as the interior and exterior. Surfboards and posters, leather sofas and lots of green decorate the interior and connect indoors with outdoors and vice versa. Step directly from the beach with your bare feet into the pavilion, and imagine yourself in a big living room.
Besides being open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, Zuid is also the right location for a seminar or meeting. It is possible to rent the pavilion completely or in parts, where each room can be covered. If the weather is good, it is feasible to have diner at the outside terrace.
On request, Zuid offers a special arrangement with snacks and drinks. In addition, for every occasion, dinner and lunch can be adapted to your wishes, such as serving different courses or having a buffet. Zuid also offers barbecues with fish, meat and vegetarian products. Of course, a suitable beverage arrangement can be chosen. And, you can even get married at Zuid!
Every week, Strandpaviljoen Zuid organizes recurring activities. Every Sunday, there is a chair massage and a yoga lesson at the seaside. This yoga class is also offered every Thursday and Sunday. On April the 22nd, the traditional Zuid Lentefeest takes place, where both the opening of Zuid as the return of the sunny weather is celebrated. Discover local products, buy a summer outfit on the ‘Kleremarkt’ and dance to summer tunes. Tip: go by bike – even though the party starts in the afternoon, the gin tonics are waiting for you from the start!
