We were within walking distance from the hotel so stopped a few times to eat because the food was so good. Just one "plat du jour" served (in addition to other salads) and excellent quality. Kids had fun just taking a dip or trying to...More

We were so pleasantly surprised when we came here. There's various areas to swim so even on busy days it's quite easy to avoid the crowd. The views over the lake and the waterjet are simply magnificent. There are two smaller "pools" that aren't deep...More

Escape in another dimension, forget the little city that is Geneva, enjoy the lake, the views, the atmosphere. Nice buvette / restaurant.

There is a charge to enter during the day. Mostly sunbathers at that time. I was more interested in the nightlife. There are a couple of great restaurants with reasonable prices. Band and dancing.

Right in the heart of Geneva, a pier from which you can swim. Food is served from 11.30am and is excellent and very good value.

Beautiful place to hang out if it’s not crazy crowded. You can take your picnic or buy food, drinks there. You can swim eat relax. When ever I’m in Geneva I go there.

In the summer, try out their greek salad. In the winter, their fondue is stunning. Unfortunate that in the winter the place is over heated. In the summer, enjoy the breeze from the lake and take a good swim in the lake.

it is interesting to see where the locals go swimming in the lake. the place has an 'old' vibe. the restaurant is cheap compared to others in Geneva. I wanted to try the fondue, but they serve it only after 18

Sorry Dawn I saw your question only minutes ago. Did you have a good stay. You couldn't swim the lake in December but I hope you had a good stay

For the "beach", it's Fr.2 per adult, for the hammam/sauna, it's Fr.10 per adult. There is no entrance fee for the restaurant (self service).

Take bus number 6, 8, 9 or 25 to stop 'Mont-Blanc'. Walk east along the lake. After about 500 meters you will see the jetty on which 'les Bains des Paquis' are located.
