We had no idea that Paris Plage even existed until we happened upon it while strolling along the Seine. It is time limited (ends mid August I believe) but only in Paris could you find so many happy people relaxing in their chaise lounge or on their blanket, surrounded by sand. I suppose you can bring some food to eat... More

We first caught sight of the Paris Plage along the banks of the Seine in July 2006, when the "beach" was in full swing. What a great idea! Locals relax and enjoy the sun with an almost Mediterranean feel, as the rest of the city continues with the hustle and bustle around them. A fun idea that makes for a... More

One evening during our vacation in Paris, we decided to take in the Paris Plages (Paris Beach). It was worth the trip. In addition to allowing the kids to play in the sand, there were a number of other activities to participate in. They had sprinklers set up for the children to cool down in, free massage stations and, finally,... More

Well, Paris has no sea and probably the citizens who stay home in summer need to somehow relax and suntan under the sun. This, in case you wonder why parisiens put sand and chaise-longues sur la Seine!!!!

Horrid man asked me to move even though I bought a drink from the same company just a minute from his station. I moved because all the shaded areas were taken. He said I couldn't drink it here and didn't listen to my insistence that I'd bought I from his mate and was hot. Anyway, I ended up with terrible... More

Fantasis place in the center og the city. It is a relaxing place to bring a good book. In stead of a bench in one of the many parks.

if you visit Paris during the summer you HAVE to go to Paris-Plage ! on the river Seine or by the canal de la Vilette, it's fun, it's unusual, it's "ephemere"... so many activities proposed for the young and adults ... it's a nice break among the full day of visits you will do during your stay ! connect on...

First place in Paris where we found free water on tap! AFter spending €5 for a small bottle of water up the Eiffel Tower! Fake beach: ice cream, bars, sand, deck chairs, water fountains - perfect place to chill in the heat of the Paris sunshine!

Loved the little showers which gently sprayed a cooling mist in the middle of a hot day. And being able to wear swimwear in the middle of the capital city without feeling foolish.

Crowded but kids will love walking along the Seine and eating ice cream and trying out some of the activities.
