This is among the locals' favorite spot. Swim and colorful meals in the summer, sauna and fondue in winter. Always pretty crowded, but definitely a place to experience Geneva.

You might not swim in the winter but you can still get great food and drinks with good prices. Fondue all year and always a good atmosphere lake side with a view on the city. The lights at night are magical!

The best place to go in Geneva if the weather is warm in summer. There is a beach where everyone swims and has a great time. You can also buy food and some beverages!
