cool for an early swim listening to concerts in the summer, great greek salad, perfect for sunbathing while chatting with your tanning buddy, cool in the winter for a great fondue with the best view on the lake and the montblanc... absolutely informal and a bit hippy, which is refreshing in posh Geneva

I think this is the only cheap thing in the entirety of Geneva. It's CHF2 to get in (CHF1 for teens/kids) and the same price again if you want a cubicle (you probably do, to change and leave your stuff in).

This was one of our places to visit. Lots of areas to swim, chill out and areas for children to play. A very pleasant walk to the lighthouse.

There is so much to do at this location and in its vicinity. Depending on the season and the temperature, certainly swimming is a unique feature. But there are also dozens of great (and reasonably-priced) cafes and restaurants within a few blocks. Probably the ideal neighborhood for touristic visit.

Great beach to hang out with friends and family. The best fondue in Geneva is here as well. If you come to Geneva in the summer, this is the place to be.

This place gets packed with the cheap good food and perfect view of the lake and the mountains. Nice place to hang around and relax with a drink. Just make sure to check the queue for food and drinks. It gets long.

The place to be! In the center of Geneva. This place is just magic if you understand that Geneva is a very expansive city where any appartement with Lake view cost million's. Here you eat for a very cheap price (compare to the other Lake View restaurant) some fresh food. Very very simple food but very good (compare to the... More

Come and have luch here and try the Greek salad. This is the only place in Geneva where you can see a banker with a tie having lunch next to a student in a T-shirt and swimm suit. It is so casual and that's why people love gthis place.
