(4.6/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Once a sleepy fishing town, Le Port d'Ouchy today has become a popular lakeside resort.

As well as views of the Alps, you can spot nearby France and even take a short boat trip to the French town of Evian-les-Bains. Grab an ice cream or tuck into a three-course meal at one of the charming restaurants. Kids can make use of a much-loved playground. Make sure to bring your passport if you do intend to visit France.
