After having been partially opened to the general public in 2019, the Eaux-Vives public beach will be closed to the public until further notice. The health crisis caused by the COVID-19 epidemic led to the work site being closed down before work resumed at a slower pace than initially planned due to the health standards to be respected on site. If the situation continues to improve, we can hope to see the beach re-open during the second half of summer.

Les Eaux-Vives public beach is located on Quai Gustave-Ador, between Baby-Plage and le Port Noir. While the official opening is scheduled for 2020, it will already be open to the public throughout summer 2019, from 22 June to 29 September.
