Paris Plages

Sun, carefree idleness and warm sand, welcome to Paris Plages
Dozing in the summer sun by the water, taking part in an exciting beach volleyball match, getting a tan together whilst the kids build a sandcastle … In summertime in Paris, this is all possible with the Paris Plages event! From mid-July to mid-August (this year: July 20st-September 4st), the Georges-Pompidou expressway (4th) and the La Villette canal basin (19th) will be transformed into an oasis of deckchairs and fine sand, inviting Parisians to unwind and take advantage of the many different activities on offer.
