When Paris Turns Into Saint Tropez

Thursday, August 2, 2012


The Paris-Plage (Paris Beaches) kicks off in Paris every year in late July, transforming riverside roads usually congested with cars into an urban oasis complete with sandy beaches, deckchairs, food vendors, outdoor concerts and Parisian woman eating ice cream in bikinis (see above). Your welcome.

This year find the riverside beaches at Louvre/Pont de Sully, Port de la Gare and Bassin de la Villette. For more information about what you’ll find and a calendar of events, click here.
