There’s A Million Fish In The Sea, But I’m A Mermaid | The Fat Mermaid, Scheveningen

Raise your hands if you are ready for days at the beach… Well, I definitely am. There is just something so relaxing about spending time at the beach. I’ve wanted to go to Scheveningen again for awhile now, so when beach club season officially opened, Elba and I went to Scheveningen. Last time I was there, my friends and I went to The Fat Mermaid. Can we just take a minute for the name of this beach bar restaurant. 🧜‍♀️ So we went there again and this time I am sharing this cute beachy hotspot with you!

THE FAT MERMAID | Strandweg 9, Scheveningen

The Fat Mermaid is a bar restaurant at the beach in Scheveningen. ☀️ It’s located right at the boulevard, which makes it accessible from the beach and boulevard as well. There are so many beach clubs and restaurants around the boulevard but you do have to walk a little further along the beach to actually find this hotspot. I think that’s why I like it so much because it’s like a little hideaway. Only when you know about it you’ll walk a little further to actually go there. At The Fat Mermaid you can have all day breakfast, lunch, diner and cocktails if you like.

The look of The Fat Mermaid is very beachy. Wow, surprise right? No but really, it’s not like all of the other beach clubs along the boulevard. From the photos I took you can tell all of the colors tie in with beachy colors. But for some reason it does stand out. Maybe that’s because of the cute Vedett van on their terrace. You can actually sit inside, outside on the terrace or just on the beach.

They have a pretty large menu to choose from. From sandwiches to toast and from burgers to nachos. After looking at the menu for a little bit, Elba ordered a cheese toastie with some other appetizers and I got the veggie sandwich. My veggie sandwich consisted of bread spread with some very tasty humus and a selection of different roasted veggies. 🍅 It was such a good sandwich, since there were a lot of veggies, it was definitely too much for me to eat all at once haha.

Next time I definitely want to go here for dinner because I think it will look amazing with the fairy lights on, some good food and a DJ playing some relaxing music. Sounds like the perfect summer night, am I right?

After we enjoyed our tasty lunch and refreshing drinks, we sat a little longer and just talked. Since we went on a Thursday, it was super quiet in Scheveningen, which I actually loved. That’s what also made it easy for me to take some sphere photos of this hotspot. I can’t wait to spend some time here during the summer! You can find The Fat Mermaid at Strandweg 9 in Scheveningen. Do you like going to the beach? Have you ever been to The Fat Mermaid?

    This restaurant looks great! I wished I lived nearby so I could check it out … I guess I’ll just put it on my list of places to see when I do visit. The rustic wood, and colours create a lovely atmosphere and the food looks AMAZING! yum 😀
