Pirates Ahoy

Nyon Plage is now fit for budding pirates! After its recent renovation, the Plage communale des Trois-Jetées in Nyon features a fantastic wooden pirate ship, complete with slide and command room.

We’ve talked about Nyon plage before, but this new facelift is just too fantastic not to be documented with a few more photos. There’s no parking right next to the Plage communale des Trois-Jetées, so you will have to park a bit further away and then walk towards the lake – but the view from the steep slope as you approach the beach is really quite something…

The Plage communale des Trois-Jetées in Nyon consists of a large lawn area – kitted with ping pong tables, showers, toilets – and a thin strip of sand right in front of the wooden pirate ship. This sandy bit, made up of a mixture of coarse sand and tiny pebbles, isn’t very big but it’s perfect for young children: we’ve spent many happy hours building sand-castles here in the last few weeks!

Access to Nyon plage is free of charge and the beach is open 7 days a week (9am to 9pm) from the 1st of May to the 30th of September. Don’t forget your picnic basket for a great day-out at the beach: the views over Mont Blanc on a clear day are absolutely breathtaking.
