We are new to stand up paddling and don’t have any of our own boards. We’ve found this to be a great and affordable way to enjoy the beaches in Geneva as a family.
LA PLAGE DU REPOSOIR – on the lake
This beach on the Chambésy side of the lake is perfect for stand-up paddlers of all levels. The water is calm and the SUP centre is great, offering individual and group lessons throughout the season, as well as summer camps for children. (Superkid)
Rent your own paddle boards here and lock your valuables in lockers while you’re out on the water. (This is very handy as it means everyone can go out at the same time without worrying about where to put your belongings). We rented two adult boards and two children’s boards.
You can paddle out far without worrying about currents. We spent hours on the water! This beach is ideal for beginner paddlers and families. They also offer paddle board yoga.
The beach offers a restaurant and buvette (where we had some hot dogs and fries) toilets, a shower and a lawned beach, as well as 50 parking spaces.
If you’re coming by bus, take bus 1 and get off at Jardin Botanique, from where it’s a 10 minute walk.
from CHF 15 per hour for adults CHF10 children.
