  • In summer I think is a good place. But O went there in april so... I can't say for sure. It fine to walk near the lake , see the swans and the ducks swimming around. People were jumping into the water...  more »
  • Very good address, flat simple but excellent, I've never been disappointed. They make a delicious tea with Mint. At noon, two dishes of quality. The terrace is large enough, people are even sitting on the floor in the Sun to enjoy the Sun in total relaxation. Large closed surface and presence of plenty of pan on feet to be warm in the winter or when it's cold. In fine weather, the restaurant is often very full so be sure to book if you are a lot. In the right season, very popular place because there is the beach with access to the Lake in a secure way in order to bathe. Instead of games for kids too.

  • The uncontested heart of Geneva. In summer for swimming, sunbathing and enjoying a glass of wine, traditional dried meat with a spectacular view on the jet d'eau, the city, the boats and sometimes the Mont Blanc. Un winter for Sauna or a delicious Fondue.
  • Summer: Nice place to chill early morning and late afternoon. It can get crowded during the day. Winter: my favorite spot in town for late Turkish bath, sauna and cold Lake dips. The restaurant is also great quality price, recommend the dayly dish and the fondue.
  • The most beautiful pier in the middle of the lake, right across from the jet d'eau. On a summer day, there are lots of people sunbathing, swimming, and enjoying the sun. There are places to get food and alcohol and it's an absolute amazing place to take photos.
  • A great place- a long pier jutting into the lake, with very good cheap (for Geneva) food and drinks, a beach, turkish baths and sauna. Theres a free climbing feature in the water, and some outdoor excercise devices. Great for spending a sunny day off work, as on weekends it can get crowded
  • We found this place as we were walking around Geneva trying to find something fun to do. This pier/park is great on a hot summer day for a modest entrance fee of 2 francs. There is even a climbing wall in the water and good swimming. It can get crowded though.
