Great views and walking

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.

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.

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.

It wasn't great in this area, especially if you want to get past chest deep water, as soon as you go past the buoys it's full of weeds. Really small beach area so it gets crowded fast. $7 a person to listen to life guards yell at people with megaphones...and no alcohol. Won't be going back to this one. Probably... More

The old Top Deck of my youth is the Riviera. A fun, tourist stop along the beautiful shore of Geneva Lake. Boat tours leave from this site, burgers, ice cream, souvenir shops are all in the lower level. A beautiful fountain, perfect for photo taking sits out front.

Beach is clean, a little on the small side. Cost is $7 per person, so can add up for a family. Nice stretch of shore line with deep area clearly marked.
