Bains des Pâquis
It is essential to visit this curious beach with special views, swimming pools in the lake, a good restaurant, boat trips, saunas, massages...
Water, sun and relaxation.
Not far from the Jet d'Eau, and with wonderful views of the lake, the Bains des Pâquis, created in the '30s, are a mandatory visit for every tourist in Geneva. In addition to strolling around its piers, you may -weather permitting- jump into the lake swimming pools or, if you prefer, enjoy a good fondue at the restaurant while admiring the great Leman lake. This beach (entrance fee 2 swiss francs) is fascinating for those lovers of sun and relaxation who, in the summertime, can enjoy an unusual view of the city and even take a quiet boat trip. It is also a place worth visiting during the winter, since there are saunas and Turkish baths, a massage parlour and tai-chi classes.
