“Interesting bech in th middle of Lake Geneva”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

This is not an ordinary bech with sands, but because its in the middle of he Lake they have wooden decks that you can use it instead of usual sands. It's crowded always specially at weekends nod full of music activities. There is a nice restaurant there also that you can have food all th time. Admission is only € 2 per person. It has all needed facilities of WC, showers, an changing rooms.

“Great time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

This is a busy little area but well worth a visit. With a man made piece of beach people can swim in lake Geneva here. In the evening it becomes vibrant with locals who eat at a restaurant there serving fish and chips. The night we were there there was a dance off at the end of the pier which was great to watch!

“A multicolor and multicultural place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Wonderful spot at the lake. You can take sun, swim in the lake and have a wonderful meal at the cafeteria. In winter you can eat a champagne cheese fondue , wonderful experience.
At lunchtime you have a colorful crowd, going from the bank employee to the young lake enjoyer, always interesting to go there and see all those different people mixed up !! It is the first place to go to take sun during Spring. Entrance paying from June to September.

“an alternative place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

this is a beach known for its cheap prices and 'alternative' customers. you are not particularly comfortable laying on the concrete, but you have the best view of Geneva, can watch the boats sail by, eat some good cheap food and spy on all the other people: from bankers to rebels they all come here at some stage during the day! 2fr entry. a great breakfast is served, and other food throughout the day. don't expect fast or fancy service though!!

“disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

was looking forward to a visit to the baths and needed to cool down on a very hot day so the swim in the lake hit the spot. however it was very crowded and the facilities for relaxing comfortably left a lot to be desired. choice consisted of lying on a towel on concrete, pebbly beach or wooden slats. also no information about changing cubicles. took ages to find out what the system was. men have to pay 3 swiss francs for a key and leave something of value as a surety to obtain a cubicle where they can leave their belongings. women have access to a changing cubicle and can then leave their belongings free of charge at a manned cloakroom.
