The Beach Is Open!

plage-parisSince 2002, Paris Plage has been enchanting sojourners with imported sand aligning the right bank of the Seine. And this sand is the good stuff too. It’s not the course grainy sand of the Pacific. It’s as though they sifted all the junk out, leaving only a fine layer of a bit of Heaven that will delight your feet.

ppLocated along the quais Henri IV, Célestins, l’Hôtel de Ville, Mégisserie and the Louvre, just look for the row of blue umbrellas and lawn chairs down on the bank and you will be there. Changing rooms are provided and there will be some sort of water available to splash on your face.

If sunbathing isn’t your thing, not to worry; there are a host of activities ranging from table tennis, fencing, working out, dance, youth oriented musicals, massage, a playground for kids, just to name a few.
