The Plage des Eaux-Vives – which was first scheduled to re-open on May 16th, was not going to open at all this summer due to delays in construction work caused by the coronavirus.
However, the Canton of Geneva has just announced that work has progressed enough to foresee a full opening to the public in August. Hurray!
The facilities that needed to be completed include toilet blocks, as well as benches and facilities for those with reduced mobility. It is not yet clear whether the restaurant at the end of the jetty will open.
When finished, the new beach will be 400 meters long and will have large green spaces. The park adjacent to the beach will also be open.
The long-awaited beach was partially opened last summer – read our previous article about the new beach in Geneva – and was a massive success.
NOTE – dogs are not allowed in the beach or park.
