Riviera Beach is located in downtown Lake Geneva. There is a nice beach area that is lifeguard protected. When we were there, it was too cold to go in the water, but the grandkids loved playing at the play area. It definitely helped tire them out for the car ride home. Right next to the beach is the Riviera Pavilion,... More

The beach is fun and clean, and I like e that they have a grassy area in the shade i case you are not interested in toasting in the sand. Life guards are good. The shops are fun to explore and the piers are fun to walk and look at the fish off the sides.

I love Riviera beach and the shops on the pier! It can get crowded in the summer but that's ok. It is clean, great for kids and everyone that goes there is respectful. I've been going there for years and have never run into any problems. I go all times of the year and was last there in early January.... More

Nice little beach where you never would expect it. Very clean and warm water during summer. Free to walk in off season, pay per visit during open season. Can be very crowded, so get there early and reserve your spot!

My wife and i spent a beautiful day at the riviera beach. It was clean and the water was wonderful. the life guards appeared well trained and we felt comfortable knowing they we watching over us. The small fee is well worth it as this is a very nice beach and on the shore of lake geneva.

A stop to Lake Geneva deserves a visit to the Riviera Beach area. The Riviera itself is hosts to a few shops below and the tour boat docks. We have yet to go in the summertime or take a boat cruise but it is on our list in the future. Great scenery and a chance for some great photo ops!

Very small beach. I wouldn't pay to access it. They do charge in summer for use. The ballroom part was busy with wedding reception and the outside had several photo shoots happening.

Great walking path and view of the lake. Boat rides available. Park across street. Near downtown and hotels. Well worth a few minutes or more of anyone's time.

Our family met at Lake Geneva and one of the highlights was going to Riviera Beach. The beach is extremely clean and well supervised. You do have to pay to get in. It's $7 for adults and I believe $4 for children ages above 7, under 7 are free. There are little kiosks outside of the gated check in area... More

Beach is very small n not much things to do. On top of it there is $7 entry fee per head for such a small beach. Side walk by the lake wa the best part.
