F.A.S.T. Surfers Village

The F.A.S.T. (Free Architecture Surf Terrain) surfers village lies near the port entrance at the end of the Scheveningen boulevard. The village lies at less than a minute away on foot from the beach and is built entirely from recycled materials, varying from sea containers to jerry cans. The surfers village features a hostel, camping site, bar, restaurant, surfer store and a surfing school.

You can even spend the night at the F.A.S.T. surfers village in an old life capsule. This so-called capsule hotel was named the world’s most remarkable hotel by Lonely Planet.
