  • This place I love at any time of the year, in summer for sunbathing and drinking a few beers full of people and in winter go to the bathrooms not very expensive and recommended being able to bathe in the Lake. Perfect.

  • for sure this isn't the typical geneva place. you see a lot more of the alternative types and a lot less of the suits, but there's still a varied crowd that mixes well. recommended: fondue!!!

  • 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.
