Ports

Scheveningen is a popular sea resort in the Netherlands, a stone’s throw away from the seat of government in The Hague. It has a busy marina and a lively (somewhat kitschy) promenade – great for an afternoon of sightseeing. You’ll also find plenty to do nearby. Go for a walk in the dune landscape or take a tour around the Palace of Peace. Visit Madurodam to see the Netherlands rebuilt in miniature, check out the city centre of The Hague, or explore the beach and perhaps even go kitesurfing.

Douarnenez is a picturesque seaside town in the Cornouaille region at the end of the Brittany peninsula, close to the Western-most point of France. Traditional Breton society is evident in the narrow streets and alongside the 4 harbours that open to the Atlantic Ocean. After dis-embarking, visit the Maritime museum or the surprise-packed Isle of Tristan. If it's summer, explore the area - pick between beaches, restaurant-lined quaysides and local villages.
