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.
