Enjoy Paris Plages: activities along the Seine

All our flats in Paris

Who says you have to be near the sea to enjoy a nice beach? Eager to innovate, the Paris City Council took the initiative to organise Paris Plages. This annual event has been going on since 2002, offering atmospheric summers to Parisians and holidaymakers alike who come to discover the City of Light.

Every year, from July to mid-August, Paris Plages takes place on the right bank of the Seine on the quays, on the Place de l'Hôtel de Ville but also on other sites such as the Bassin de la Villette, the largest artificial lake in Paris.

Lots of activities for children

The summer holidays are above all an opportunity to have fun for the youngest. The table football is available in two versions: a "mini" for the little ones and an XXL. There is also a bumpy terrain for mountain bikers, a merry-go-round, a zip line and a water park. The science workshops and the club for 3-6 year olds are also very popular, a real little paradise!

Paris Plages: leisure activities for all

Children are not the only ones who can have fun. There are many activities for adults looking for fun. Needless to say, they are all free. You can go pedal boating or play in the bowling alley. Classic and unusual boats are also available to help you discover (or rediscover) the pleasures of water sports.

Drinking and eating on the banks of the Seine

After a few activities, you will probably need to hydrate or eat. Food trucks and restaurants are there to satisfy both the hungry and the hungry. And why not take a takeaway and enjoy it in the picnic area? The surrounding palm trees will give you the impression of lounging in front of the ocean.
