To reach the beach you have to walk down through the dunes which are important in protecting the land against potentional ravages by storm waves from the sea.
Or use the stairs.
The dunes are planted with marram grass to keep the sand together.
The old dunes, more landward are overgrown with bushes. In the distance you can see the skyline of the government city the Hague.
To our surprise there were still some flowers in the dunes although it is autumn. We are enjoying a kind of Indian summer with cold nights but lots of sunshine during the day with temperatures of 17 degrees C (62.6 F).
