New beach opens in Geneva
A new lakeside beach in Geneva has partially opened.
On Saturday sunbathers and swimmers were able to check out the new 400-meter-long beach near Eaux-Vives.
Its been two years in the planning, subject to legal challenges due to its environmental impact, and cost near CHF 70m. It will be able to handle 8,000 people a day.
Although work has been going on for more than 2 years, its not finished. It will close again in September and completed for next summer.
