Nice beach, but can get expensive

Beach is clean, a little on the small side. Cost is $7 per person, so can add up for a family. Nice stretch of shore line with deep area clearly marked.

It wasn't great in this area, especially if you want to get past chest deep water, as soon as you go past the buoys it's full of weeds. Really small beach area so it gets crowded fast. $7 a person to listen to life guards yell at people with megaphones...and no alcohol. Won't be going back to this one. Probably... More

The old Top Deck of my youth is the Riviera. A fun, tourist stop along the beautiful shore of Geneva Lake. Boat tours leave from this site, burgers, ice cream, souvenir shops are all in the lower level. A beautiful fountain, perfect for photo taking sits out front.

Very nice beach. It was a bit packed but it was clean. The kids had a great time. Also it's close to the boat rentals and cruises.

Spend the morning at the beach. The water was perfectly clear and warm. You may want to bring a shade umbrella to sit under and nap or read. Beautiful view of the tour boats. Sand clean and fine grained . Love this beach!

The beach is rather pleasant, although it could use some shade. For the $7 tab to get in for adults, there are few amenities. Just very old, dilapidated changing rooms. The lake itself is not for swimmers. The water is clean. The very shallow sandy part of the water for kids is fine . . . but you can't go... More

The beach in Lake Geneva is well groomed and maintained. Workers are out early in the morning to groom the sand and prepare it for the beachcomers. Lifeguards are also present and the beach is safe for small children. Places to eat are within walking distance to the beach, so the whole day can be spent near the beach. The... More

The beach is a great place to bring family with lots of shops and restaurants near by. There were lifeguards on duty as well as markers for deep spots. It costs money to swim at the beach and there is absolutely no shade on the sandy part so bring a blanket and umbrella. The water was a nice temperature (in... More

Crowded, expensive to get on, especially if youv'e got a gaggle of children. $7. for adults and $4. for kids. Lot's of sand throwing. Everything in Lake Geneva went to automated boxes that you stick your credit card in. I dislike it now and rarely go there, as you park, have to find a box meter, figure out your spot...I... More
