So Paris Plage is not really a beach, however it is a fun place to go hang out during the summer months. The Parisiennes are away, the city is warm, and not as congested as it could be. The city council then sets up this "artificial beach" along the banks of the River Seine. Sand, beach chairs, palm trees &... More

When visiting Paris, the Paris Plages were about down the River Seine! It is fabulous to see when bobbing round the city. it has deck chairs, sand and ice cream parlours! including music etc.. Great added touch.

We took 4 kids to Paris and my friend who is a local with a 3 year old had some great tips on cheap fun things to do in Paris in August and Paris Plage (meaning beach) was by far the favourite. We went here every day for the month and it was hard to get the kids to leave... More

Don't miss this festival if you're visiting Paris on July and August. It's a fascinating imagination with a real feeling of beach, sand and relaxation under the sunshine in the heart of Paris!

We were coming back from The Louvre and came upon this sand beach on Seine. Sand castles, beach chairs, Ice cream, beer and another place to people watch. The great American- French thing to do.

What a delightful surprise: Sandy areas, beach chairs, and all sorts of fun ways to pass the time. We found the area with about 10 fussball tables - great. Also an area for dance classes. And Louvre-sponsored art place where children could color famous paintings. Kudos to the City of Paris for the imagination and sponsorship - for tourists but... More

There are 2 parts of Paris Plage one on the Seine from the Louvre to Ile de la Cité (on rive droite only) and the other on the canal de l'Ourcq from Juares to le parc de la Villette (on both sides). These events are staged every year by the Paris municipality for Parisians who don't get away for a... More

After a degustation menu or hours of sight seeing, this place is perfect to rest and have an ice cream. Bring a book and your sunnies. It isn't like a beachy beach - afterall, you're in the centre of Paris! It's sand and R&R Parisien style.

We really had a good time there. The sand is white, powdery and clean. The beach chairs and umbrellas are free. The Louvre has an area for art enrichment - kids can draw. There's plenty of security to keep things safe, but no one hassles you about open containers... Whether you're here on a date or just wanting to spend... More
