GENEVA PLAGE (BEACH)
Geneva Plage is situated on the western shore of Lake Geneva at the far end of the lake’s Gustave Ador Quay and boasts a diving board, paddling pools, volleyball courts and a host of water sports.
On the eastern bank is a water park (Aquaparc) with an Olympic-sized pool, waterslide, water ski launch, wading pool and rafts leading to the lake. There are also basketball, volleyball and beach volleyball courts for those who prefer land-based activities. More relaxed leisure seekers will enjoy Geneva Plage’s facilities for table tennis and ‘pétanque’, a traditional French outdoor ball sport comparable to British lawn bowling. The beach and open patch of lawn attract both locals and tourists who appreciate an afternoon of sunbathing, picnics and fun physical activity.
