The Plage des Eaux-Vives – which was scheduled to re-open on May 16th, is unlikely to open this summer due to delays in construction work caused by the coronavirus.
The long-awaited beach was partially opened last summer – read our previous article about the new beach in Geneva – and was a massive success.
As a result of the pandemic the work being done on building ablution facilities on the new beach had to be interrupted and more than 5 weeks of work has been lost. The work has not yet recommenced.
Only certain walkways between Geneve Plage and la Belotte in Cologny are likely to open.
No final decision has yet been taken about the planned new restaurant de la Plage des Eaux-Vives, which was also meant to open this summer. The much-awaited restaurant is situated at the end of the jetty of the new beach.
