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

It's pretty funny to see men in Speedos and women in bikinis in downtown Paris. Free attraction, buy a beer or glass of wine, find a beach chair, sit down and people watch. Great way to relax after walking all over the city. Lots of clean portable bathrooms, too.

I spent several hours at the beach today, in Paris! The city arranges for this attraction along the Seine river every summer. The sand was really powdery, there were lounge chairs free of charge, umbrellas, water fountains, showers, small ice cream and beverage vendors. It was a pleasant experience and fun to watch the boats go by. I would recommend... More

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
