“hardy swimmers and a buzzing bar”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Even at the end of October, we saw several swimmers braving Lac Leman. The walkway to the bar and beaches takes you right out into the lake and gives a wonderful view of the Cathedral and the Old Town of Geneva

“Great place!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

I went with a friend and we stayed there all day long. The place is beautiful and you can swim in the lake!! Don't forget your towels. Also you have a awesome view of the city!

“a piece of kult in geneva - with probably the best lunch in town”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

one of my favourite places in Geneva! The bathhouse-pier was built a good while ago and still remains almost intact. In the summer you can enjoy a great lunch here for a very good price and a priceless view. there are changing cabins for swimming and safe areas for children. in the summertime there are free morning concerts at sunrise (recommended!) and in the winter they serve the famous swiss cheese fondue (one of the best in town!) for a very decent price. Year-round offers of sauna, hammam, massage etc. check out their program on: www.bains-des-paquis.ch

“crowded, uncomfortable but still very pleasant”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Having spent many lunch hours here when I was young, I discovered lately that nothing big has changed, except that they have added some massage facilities. A good restaurant add to this small island, but be aware, the water is cold most of the year.

“A great vantage point”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

A very nice little lakeside area, with a great view of the entire Geneva skyline and the jet. There is plenty of decking to sit and relax, food stalls nearby if you get hungry!. There is also a little pier, which you can walk right out into the lake. And get a great panoramic shot! If you have your geneva pass in hand, you can also take the free taxi boats to the other side, its a brief journey, but cant complain with the price!
