Paris Plage

Since 2002, the City of Paris has turned the banks of the Seine into a summertime “beach oasis.” Mid-July through August, over 2,000 tons of white sand is brought onto the banks from Ile St. Louis to the Jardin des Tuileries for this temporary beach party. August is typically the month when most Parisians hit the road for their summer travels. Chatelet is a good metro stop to get off at to get to the plage. Those who are stuck in the city can be found lounging under the big umbrellas and enjoying free concerts and family activities at Paris Plage. If you really want to fit in, don a wide-brimmed hat and grab your sarong!
