  • We went during the winter for the sauna and ḥammām. You pay chf20 for entry. Do remember to bring two large towels. You can also rent towels here. Facilities are basic but good enough. There's two sau...  more »
  • In summer as in winter, views of Geneva, the Lake, the water jet, the stranded. Nice for a walk, have a drink with friends, swimming with or without children. The refreshment bar dishes are quite good at affordable prices in the summer. In winter, a must try the fondue in the cottage of the snack bar. Don't miss no more, the massages offered by the hands of the baths, Hammam and Sauna. And of course, the Lake...!

  • A nice place, it feels fast like at home... Whether you want to relax, meditate, go do a hammam, swimming in summer (or winter for the brave) not to mention the delicious traditional fondue. Friendly, familiar staff. My favorite place in Geneva!

  • 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.
