Next to the cobblestones is the beach! The Paris Plages event has become a real institution and it’s back this summer. Now spread over three sites, this celebration of seaside-style fun invites you to relax and unwind, discover new sports, and cool off with a refreshing dip. In short, to enjoy the pleasures of summer in Paris… Discover all its charms during your stay at the Hotel Albe Saint-Michel.
The beach in the heart of Paris
Leaving the Hotel Albe Saint-Michel, all you have to do is cross the Seine and the Île de la Cité to reach the Rive Droite quays and one of the Paris Plage locations. The banks of the Seine actually host part of the event. There, you will find deckchairs and parasols on the lawns. To complete the beach/seaside ambiance, there are palm trees to give you shade, giant games are available and mist sprays to refresh you when you get too warm in the sunshine. And while you’re tanning, you can catch up on some reading as the Bibliothèques Hors les Murs pop-up libraries offer fiction, non-fiction, magazines and more.
Fun on and in the water
For outdoors sports activities, go to the Bassin de la Villette, where Paris Plages offers plenty of fun on and in the water. There’s swimming pools and paddling pools and the main bodies of water invite you to go for a pedalo ride, row a canoe or Polynesian canoe or even try your hand at stand-up paddleboarding. In the Jardins du Trocadéro, various sports federations offer an introduction to the disciplines that will be on the programme of the Paris 2024 Olympics.
Paris Plages brings you a summer full of surprises in the heart of the capital. For a full day or for a few hours, enjoy Paris Plages during your stay at the Hotel Albe Saint-Michel!
