On a hot summer day the ideal place to sit back, relax, watch the boats pass by and drink something with friends.

This is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon with small kids when in Paris. We arrived by the Batobus (Batobus stop Hotel de Ville) and after a security check of our bags (common occurrence in Paris this summer), we were on the Plage. This is 3km of a summer beach on the banks of the Seine (taken... More

It was a very hot day when we visited so you had to be there early to grab a deck chair or a spot. It was nice to have some shady areas. There are also toilets and water fountains to fill your water bottles. I do wish bike riders would get off there bikes in what should be a pedestrian... More

The walk along the Seine is spoiled by hideous delapidated green storage boxes for street vendors and wild, wild untrimmed trees that block the view of the wonderful architecture Paris has to offer. Perhaps the City will one day clean this central area up.

We love to visit the Paris Plage (if it is still on). The dates vary slightly each year however it seems to happen mid July to mid August. Basically the banks of the Seine (close to Pont des Arts area) are turned into an artificial beach complete with deckchairs and activities for all. It is well signposted. We love just... More

Pretend you're in the south of France without leaving Paris. There are beach chairs, sofas, snacks, and a lending library.

We brought our 6 and 9 year old here, and we had a blast! The kids played with the free beach toys all afternoon digging and building while we sat in comfy chairs and relaxed. We also played pétanque (like bocce ball) for free and had a great time. My 6 year old rented a free bike to bike up... More

What a great idea. We wandered through the "plage" areas along the bank of the Seine. Sadly there were no spare deck chairs but we had ice cream and....more importantly....a free wee as this is one of the few places in Paris with free toilet facilities (which were immaculate despite being chemical toilets). Clearly families loved the idea as well... More

Each summer, for about four weeks (July 20-August 18, in 2015), there are three areas that are designated "Paris Plage." We were just on the right bank between the Pont Neuf and Pont de Sully bridges (approximately 3 km). Sand, of course, is brought in, and there are deck chairs and beach umbrellas. There are sprinklers (for kids of all... More

I am French and lived all my life in France. I can guarantee you Paris Plage is far from being a must-see of Paris, just look at it, but don't spend a day or even half a day there. There are many things to do in the city of love, Paris Plage is not one of them.
