“Beach in Geneva!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

On a warm summer morning, take your beach bag and head to the plage. The water is cold but good to swim. You can also just idle around on the the beach. All in all a very good holiday afternoon. If you are there in summers, a must do.

“To be read only by locals ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

... because otherwise you'll bring in all your visiting friends, making the place too crowded!
This is a wonderful place of relaxation on hot summer days. Take a dip in the (very clean!) lake, do laps in the Olympic-size pool, horse around in the low water area or take your toddler to a gigantic, clean and safe toddler's paradise. If you like to have fund and wait for your turn, go down the long and winding slide!
All this is right by the lake with a marvelous view of the Jura mountains on the other side, has its own gigantic, brand-new underground parking garage and several bus lines passing by or starting in front of its gates.
Bring your blankets or beach towels, lie in the sun or in the shade, feel safe even with small kids or if you are a single woman.

full of young children and teenagers in the summer months, not recommended for middle-aged people who are looking for peace and quiet

“Nice walking area. Not for beachgoers.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2011

It is quite lovely to walk along the promenade along the lake, from the bridge toward the Perle du Lac, or in the other direction. Don't expect a proper beach.

“Great staycation place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2011

I love this place because it's like a resort in the city. The swimming pools are large and the area is very clean and well maintained. I wouldn't go into the lake itself though, because we jumped from the diving tower and ended up having a bunch of bites from some little bugs living on local ducks - so stick to the pools.
