Make the most of the last few weeks of summer and spend the day at Promenthoux beach with your little ones! This is a gloriously sandy beach not far from Prangins Castle, very popular with young families and toddlers who should come equipped with bucket & spade for hours of fun.
The water is so crystal-clear you’d be forgiven for thinking you washed up on a tropical beach rather than a few miles from home. The floating diving board approx 300 meters from the shore is perfect for older children who love water bomb jumps.
There is also a buvette, which stays open until 9.30pm in the evenings and serves up local delicacies like lard de Begnins and charcuterie to go with your apéro.
Views are stunning: Nyon Castle sits high up on a hill to your right, while on a clear day you can see the top of Mont Blanc on your left.
Entry is 3CHF for adults and 2CHF for children, but this hidden gem is well worth it.
