Start the New Year off fresh with a dive into the cold North Sea water along the coast of Scheveningen, just by the Pier. Even for the not so daring amongst us, it is a perfect day out because the sight of all those shivering people is – and always has been – a fabulous sight to see.
The largest dive in the Netherlands
In the Netherlands the 1st of January is traditionally celebrated with a new year’s dive (‘Nieuwjaarsduik’). No matter how cold it is, at least 25.000 people plunge into the freezing water each January. There are over 60 locations in the Netherlands where you can jump into the sea or a lake. The largest dive is held at the beach of Scheveningen, where well over 10.000 people plunge into the sea each year.
