Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This is the Lake Geneva beach where the local city residents love to go. The kind the tourists usually never find out about. To get to this hidden spot, you will need a few acrobatic moves. After crossing the steep gate of the Perle du lac’s small yet emblematic port, a 100-meter long stony bit of lakefront reveals itself. A quick climb downwards will give you access to the place. Usually empty, even in the summer, this spot is perfect for a peaceful afternoon swim. All without having to leave the city centre.
