“Beautiful scenery, watersports”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Multi-storey underground car park available. On Sunday we paid €1 for two hours.

Crispy clear waters. Shuttles are available though we did not use them, There are several public and private beaches (€3 and upwards entrance fee).

A jog on the southern shoreline within Geneva itself is quite enjoyable.

“Beautiful lake”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This really is a gorgeous lake with so many lovely lake-side towns but don't try to cruise the whole lake in a day. It is bigger than it seems. We went from Jardin Anglaise to Yvoire and back again which took us over half a day and was a lovely trip. I'd recommend it to others.
