For $2 Swiss Francs in the summer, you have access to the restaurant, beach, diving platforms, rock climbing fasting wall, and change rooms and massage and spa areas. All this and a stunning view of the lake and the buildings that huddle the lakeside. Plan to spend the day when it's warm and take a refreshing dip in the clean... More

I go to the Bains de Paquis restaurant every time I have guests in Geneva. Because the city is so expensive, unaided by the CHF exchange rate, it is a jewel to find a place with fresh, good food that changes every meal, that is affordable, and in a great location at that. Of course you can go to any... More

Man made peninsula extending out from Right Bank (major hotel side). Sunbathing (nude and not-nude options), swimming, a pretty good restaurant and great people watching. Many locals spend the day there. Check out great tans but wrinkled skin on the elderly bathers! I think 1 franc to get in. Well worth it if only for a different view of Geneva.... More

It's 2CHF per person to enter, but you get some lovely places by the lake to sit and there's a women only side if preferred. There's also diving platforms and rafts you can swim out to and sunbathe on. The food there is also really healthy and cheaper than most places.

In the winter days, the food is still being served even if no one is swimming in the lake. I recommend the cheese fondu as it is well made and tasty. Better reserve.

Great place if the weather's good and sunny, with a shingle beach and wooden deck area's with changing rooms and showers. There's also a cafe, if your a beach lover then this is the place to go.

What a surprise, this place located in downtown Geneva! We sat near the lake shore and watched kids playing while we relaxed at the view and with the nice breeze. Then we headed for the restaurant, an unpretentious place with good dishes at a reasonable price (for being Geneva). We'll have to come back again!

This place is very special for locals and visiters. In winter.....the self-gathering restaurant is open outside, and you take youre plate inside! In summer, you have to pay 2 francs to come here for eating a meal, swim, have a massage or sauna and take a look at the city and the boats! Great for family's, home-made food is excellent... More

Superb really relaxed and informal place. Quiet unique in the world. Nice fondue. Place is very informal - self service e.g. - but food is nice, particularly the fondue in the winter.
