The beach comes to Paris.
Once again this summer some of the roads beside the river will be closed to traffic and will be taken over by walkers, cyclists and roller-bladers. The annual event attracts Parisians and tourists alike for a seaside feel in the heart of the French capital.
Live music, mobile libraries, sport events, sandboxes, pools and more will provide visitors with a great beach-resort experience.
You'll find everything under the sun going on here, including basketball, tennis, wrestling, fencing, table tennis, bowls, tai chi, ballroom dancing, a gym area, a micro-droplet shower spray to cool you down, an "adventure beach" for young children with water games; and concerts, workshops and shows to entertain all the family. With palm trees, fine sand and plenty of deckchairs, Paris Plage offers a real holiday feeling beside the Seine.
