Obviously we couldn't swim but it looked like a nice place to take a romantic walk in the summer. Next time we're visiting I'm going to try to book a warmer month to take advantage of the lake

The beach is located within the town and there is a charge for use up to Labour Day. The beach is small, clean and safe. Close in water is shallow. Not sure if there is a lifeguard, umbrellas, or chairs.

Lake Geneva is geared more toward boating activities, not hanging on the beach, so the local stretches of sand are not the main destination for most tourists. I'm a midwesterner transplanted to the East Coast, so it took a while to adjust to the smallish-ness of Riviera Beach. Having said that, it's a nice little in town beach, with a... More

The beach was nice. It cost $7.00 per adult to get in. Take a cooler and umbrella or tent and stay the day.

My little grandchildren had a great time at the beach. The food vendor was not very far, so my daughter went to buy lunch, and we had a nice picnic at the beach.

We went for the first time in years and it was perfect for the 21 month old with us. My brother and I had a great time jumping off the piers out a little deeper in the water, but it's very shallow otherwise and great for kids. It's a good idea to bring an umbrella and chairs and get there... More

It's clean, well guarded, sometimes crowded (it's not like a Lake Michigan beach) but worth it on a hot day. The water in late summer is perfect and clean. I would like some shade, preferably a tree or free umbrellas (can't remember if you can rent them). Kids love being able to rent a raft or use what floaty things... More

Within walking distance from our hotel. A little pricey for what they had. Just an average beach, & lifeguards. Staff not particularly friendly. Don't really acknowledge you. One young man helped us use the machine to get our tickets for entrance. It was very clean. Teenagers had fun for awhile. The view of the lake is beautiful.

Loved the sand, water, and dock. Little expensive for a beach ($7 for each adult) and parking is VERY difficult. Not enough parking, but stay patient because it was worth the wait.

Lots of lifeguards, new-ish bathrooms, nice beach. Some dead fish, though staff cleaned them up when we asked.
