What we're really reviewing here are the sandy "beaches" that France's socialist mayor has been installing for several summers now, to even things out between those people who can afford to jet off to a beach community for the summer and those who can't afford to leave town. Paris is hardly coastal property, so tons of sand are hauled in... More

We normally visit Paris is January ( for my birthday) so it was lovely to visit in August and visit the Paris Plage down by the banks of the Seine. It was lovely, not too busy and there was plenty of deck chairs.

For a month during the summer Paris puts on this fantastic attraction down by the banks of the Seine. There's something for everyone - petanque, sandy banks with deckchairs, an outdoor library, finger food, bars...along with the boats going up and down the Seine, it really is a pretty setting. We were there for the last day and it wasn't... More

Paris Plage is a great place for a stroll. Is it a real beach? No. Is it a fun place to hang out for a little while? Definitely. Be sure to go online and check out the solar showers. You can rent the space for 45 minutes or an hour -- it's a private area with hammocks and a shower... More

Pristine sand, laid back vibe, plentiful sun shades, deck chairs and buckets and spades for the children ... down at the river's edge you leave the bustle behind but have the Paris architecture to soak up all around you. With drinking water points all along the plage along with plentiful loos what's not to like!

This event is organized in the Sumer, for 1 month, between the end of July and August, along the right river bank, in the center of Paris, roughly at the same level of Ile de la Cité and Ile Saint Luis. Sand is place on top of the road that is closed to car traffic during that period. Cafes, chairs,... More

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!

Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner.
