I always enjoy the Riviera beach. Nice views of boating activity, fun people watching, close to shops and restaurants.

Lake Geneva does a good job of keeping the beach clean. It is not the biggest beach, but the water in Lake Geneva gets warmer than most lakes since it isnt relatively small.

This is the place to go in the summer. The water is nice, and it's a great place to people watch. If you get bored of the sand and water, head on over to the Riviera, library, or one of the local restaurants.

I love spending a day at the Riveria beach! We collect sea shells, build sand castles and splash. Some might think it pricey. But you get what you pay for. The beach is clean so are the restrooms and lockers. There's an outdoor shower and plenty of Lifeguards. You can leave for an ice cream cone or lunch and get... More

Overly crowded small beach area. The City charges for this attraction and only paid parking is available close in. Will not return on a holday, if ever.

Beautiful little beach nestled right in the downtown. A little expensive for what's there. Small beach, and the lake is definitely full of plants (so don't think you'll walk into pristine water with a warm sandy bottom). It's always packed full of people. For it's location I give it 4 stars, but not for much else.

This place is very nice and clean bad part is that they charge... $4 for children and $7 for adults... Just be ready to pay.

I have visited Riviera Beach several times in the past few years. I went this past weekend and the quality has definitely gone downhill. My drive is a little more than an hour to get to the beach and in the past it was well worth it. However, this past weekend, the water was extremely murky and there was a... More

This is a very nice and clean beach. Lifeguards to watch over everyone. Water clear. I've also noticed that a lot of the complainers on here think that the beach and parking should be free. Yes, they do charge admission. Yes, you do have to pay for parking unless you want to walk a few blocks. But get a clue.... More
