At the beginning of each year, people will gather on the beach and dash into the cold water of the North Sea. Although you may not like doing this, seeing large numbers of Netherlanders run into the sea is also great fun. In addition, Nieuwjaarsduik (New Year’s Dive) is also an old tradition of the nation. The number of people swimming in the sea near the Scheveningen Beach is also the largest in the Netherlands. No matter how cold the water is, more than 25,000 Netherlanders with an itching heart will dash into the cold sea water without hesitation.
