Nice beach but is pretty small and gets very crowded and rowdy on the weekends. Still a fun place to go, especially because of its proximity to downtown LG. Within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. I also dislike that you have to pay...More

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!

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.

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.

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,...More

They charge entry to get in the beach which includes going in the water. They do have showers/bathrooms that close at 4pm I believe. The beach is open until 5 so if you're planning on showering, end your day a little... More
