Outdoor Activities


Each summer, Parisians and tourists can enjoy the sand, palm trees, and beach umbrellas installed along the banks of the Seine - but the river is much too murky and dirty for swimming. Enter Piscine Joséphine Baker to the rescue. The public pool, which can be found in the 13th arrondissement on a boat floating on the Seine, makes it nearly possible to really swim in the river. The boat boasts a retractable roof, swimming and wading pools, a sauna and hot tub, and plenty of deck space for sunbathing.
