20th July – 23rd August 2015
These specially created sandy oases have been springing up all around the city since 2002, providing a welcome break from the hustle, bustle and gloriously hot temperatures of Paris in the summertime.
In the historical section of Paris, one beach stretches across three kilometres of perfectly formed sand from the Louvre to Pont de Sully - coming complete with swimming pool, concert stage... and a pantheon of open air attractions - including: rock climbing, skating, boules and Tai-chi.
There are refreshment stands, cafes and restaurants, designated play areas for children and a brilliantly coloured sea of deckchairs just waiting to be used. It's the ideal atmosphere for simply relaxing on the banks of the Seine and watching an urban city carry on with its day to day life.
Further down in the city is the Bassin de la Villette beach, spanning the ground between Rue de Crimée and Rotonde de Ledoux offering: volleyball, badminton, beach tennis and an array of activities just perfect for children and adults of all ages… whilst the expansive lake of Bassin de Villette is a social hub for masses of Parisians and tourists alike. This crisp, clear body of water offers the chance to experience row boats, kayaks, peddle boats and dinghies by the score.
