A few years ago you had to drive some miles from cities like Paris, Berlin or Madrid to find a beach and have a swim. But a few years ago, urban beaches are appearing on some european cities.
In Madrid you can taste the flavor of the sea in a salt water swimming pool at a few miles from city center, in the suburb town of Parla. It is only opened during the summer, but you can enjoy a day at the beach and tan your skin without leaving Madrid.
In “Paris Plages” you cannot swin, because it is strictly prohibited to dive in the rivers, but you can lie in a deckchair and get your skin tanned for a few hours. But Paris-Plages is more than just an artificial beach, you have lots of performances, activities for kids etc. For further information check out : www.paris-plages.fr
Berlin is the is another european city in which you can enjoy the beach even if the weather is not always very sunny. In the IndoorBeachCenter you will enjoy a sweet temperature all year long, where you can practice sports like beach-volleyball or just relax in a deckachair. All the details on : www.beachberlin.de
You have no excuse to go to the beach!
