Geographical location

Plage des Marquisats à AnnecyThe Marquisats beach is a stretch of grass about 20 metres wide and 200 metres long. It is bordered by a sandbank of a few metres which will delight the little Annéciens! The bottom of the water is covered with pebbles. The depth increases quite quickly. This beach is with the beach of Albigny one of the only free beaches in Annecy.’s plus:

This beach is very pleasant in summer, as it is shaded, and therefore particularly suitable for young people. However, the lake quickly becomes deep after a few metres from the shore. Parking is quickly saturated, we recommend coming by bus, bike or on foot and preferring the morning to have space on the beach. The proximity of the Old Town of Annecy allows you to enjoy a good ice cream while visiting the site.
