It looks like the typical overcrowded beach in one of the Mediterranean countries in Europe but, believe or not, this is in The Netherlands. In particular, this photograph was taken on a sunny summer day from the pier of the beach of Scheveningen, in The Hague.

The only problem is that these sunny days are not very common in The Netherlands and, of course, don't expect the temperature to go beyond 25ºC (80ºF) nor the water to be as warm as the Mediterranean Sea.

In this sunny days, you can also hang around the promenade, always full of life, shops, restaurants and things to do. You even can do bungy jumping from a platform located at the end of the pier (see the google maps window below). You can find more info here.
