Where to go to the beach in Paris?

In summer time of course, for swimming lovers!
Every year since 2002, during the summer period, the beach is invited on the banks of the Seine in Paris as well as other sites such as the bassin de la Villette (since 2007). With this event, no need to go far away to find coolness or a summer atmosphere during the vacations. The capital offers you swimming, deckchairs, animations and various free activities every day from 10 am to 10 pm.
This year, Paris Plages will take place from July 9th to August 21st.

The idea of bringing the beach where there is none comes from Saint-Quentin (Aisne). In 1996 for the first time, the city has set up pools and beach activities for its population. The objective was to give the opportunity to the inhabitants who do not go on vacation to enjoy the summer from their homes. Since then, this annual event has continued and expanded since larger cities such as Brussels or Paris have taken it up. Swimming in Paris is now possible. It was the example of Paris in 2002 that made this operation known.
