Beach of Saint Jorioz

The beach of SaintJorioz is a large, landscaped beach with natural white sand that makes it quite unique around Lake Annecy. It is located opposite the Dents de Lanfon and Tournette mountains.

A well-equipped municipal beach

Plage de Saint Jorioz lac d'AnnecyThe equipment is very complete with a diving board, large shaded lawns, an area for the youngest (children’s games and paddling pool), a beach volleyball court and a petanque court. The beach has fine sand and a gentle slope to get into the water, which is convenient for young children.

For catering, there is a good quality restaurant and snack bar. For people with reduced mobility, the beach has a ramp to access the water and two amphibious chairs (tiralo chair and hippocampus chair). This equipment is free of charge.

The beach is subject to a charge and is supervised by lifeguards in July and August. Access is forbidden to children under 10 years of age unless accompanied by an adult. It is equipped with a turnstile at the entrance which allows you to pass the rechargeable magnetic card. The 7 surveillance and prevention posts supervise people with reduced mobility, children and access to the diving board. The beach is cleaned daily and the sand is renewed every four years.

The guide’s plus

Paddle lac d'AnnecyNext to the beach, you can rent pedalos, paddles and catamarans (on the “éclaireurs” beach side). This beach has been awarded the Blue Flag for its overall environmental management approach, as well as Tourism and Handicap for the accessibility of its leisure facilities.

La Crique beach

This is a small, hidden and hard-to-find beach that we suggest you discover. In addition to swimming, several activities are available for families or groups:

La plage de la Crique à Saint-JoriozHow to get to the beach of the creek: you reach Saint-Jorioz on the banks of Lake Annecy, you turn left at the traffic lights to follow the road to the port. You park on the car park of the municipal beach. Follow the small path along this beach and you will arrive 300 meters later at the beach of La Crique.

To go to these two beaches coming from Annecy, we advise you to come by bike in 20 minutes. This way you will avoid the many traffic jams during the summer and the difficulty of finding a parking place.
