The total area is 42.17 km² (26.2 Miles) which gives a population density of 283 inhabitants per km².

The coastal village of De Haan proper has maintained a low skyline so its many buildings in Belle Époque style are still prominently visible.

The town has an 18-hole golf course situated in its dunes, founded by King Leopold II in 1903. Today, it is the only links course in the country.[]

Its most famous resident was Albert Einstein, who lived in the villa "Savoyarde" for six months in 1933 after leaving Nazi Germany.
