Watery fun in the 15th arrondissement
Published on 1 July 2022 in Entertainment
As soon as the fine weather arrives, Paris goes into summer mode, reclaiming the parks and terraces and enjoying the open air life in general. During your summer break at the Platine Hotel, discover the options for swimming and cooling off that the 15th arrondissement has to offer...
New this summer
Less than fifteen minutes from the Platine Hotel, the Arche Javel has just opened as an extension of the Parc André Citroën. This superb and innovative project includes an open-air Olympic swimming pool and relaxation and sports areas. What is truly unusual is that it’s installed on the Seine! And if you’re in the mood to go surfing, head for Wave in Paris. The first indoor static surf wave facility in the capital boasts a huge static wave of 16 by 10 metres for flowboarding or bodyboarding. Ideal for surfing beginners and fun for experienced wave riders, it offers great sensations. Or you can simply admire the exploits of seasoned veterans of the waves while staying dry in the relaxation area!
The timeless Aquaboulevard
Imagine a huge tropical retreat of 7,000 m². Water is everywhere: in slides, wave pools and counter-current rivers for thrill seekers, in Jacuzzis and peaceful pools for those seeking calm. In summer, beaches and outdoor swimming pools invite you to enjoy the beautiful Parisian sun. You can get something to eat there and spend all day in Europe’s largest urban waterpark. And when all this watery fun gives you an appetite, before returning to the Platine Hotel, stop by the Frédéric Comyn boulangerie, which offers the best baguette in Paris!
For a cool break or an entire day in the water, the 15th arrondissement has no shortage of solutions. A few minutes on foot or by public transport from the Platine Hotel, you can head to the Parisian beach…
