Beaches on the Seine or Paris Plages

When sand is brought onto the asphalt, lounge chairs, umbrellas, and cool showers are placed atop and downtown turns into a beach

Though Paris has no access to the beaches of the French Riviera, the city still has its own so-called "Paris Plages" which emerge in summer in a few spots along the Seine River banks. These are artificially created sand beaches with lounge chairs and sun umbrellas, cool-mist spraying showers, boules courts, football tables, and even tai chi classes—everything one needs for a delightful beach holiday. Unfortunately, swimming in the Seine isn't allowed but you can find a swimming pool that is floating on the river instead. The best time to enjoy the sun on the Seine is, of course, summer.
