Beach "la Pinède"


Domaine de Ripaille
74200Thonon-les-Bains

You can reach these pebble beaches via a lane behind the communal beach. The beaches are almost 3km long and are lovely to walk along whatever the time of year or swim by during the summer.


Located just after the communal beach on the edge of the Château de Ripaille estate, La Pinède is a succession of natural little pebble beaches linked by footpaths.
In the summer you can swim here (free access – no surveillance) or walk here any time of year and soak up the peaceful atmosphere of Lake Geneva’s untamed banks.

This incomparable site on the lakeside is closely linked to the Maison de Savoie.
The banks have been listed and the site is protected.

In the summer, we do everything to ensure the location is kept clean and peaceful. You can swim in a 3km area right up to Parc de la Châtaigneraie.

One of its beaches (signposted) is for naturists.
