Frankly speaking Paris is not much popular for its beaches and the mention of its beaches is very rarely heard. The topography of the city shows that it is far away from the nearest sea. In order to overcome this natural shortcoming a citywide program implemented by the authorities has drastically changed riverbanks of Seine into sandy beaches. All the pomp of a beach is experienced here, even a floating swimming pool and opportunities of enjoying water sports as they are enjoyed elsewhere. The river water is best for enjoying swimming and a few water sports.
