Interactive beach map

Nearly 120 beaches line the shores of Lake Geneva. Discover the quality of our bathing water with the map of Lake Geneva beaches, updated annually and available on WebApp or from the Secretariat.


This bulletin presents measurement data for temperature, Secchi transparency, turbidity and chlorophyll a concentration, recorded at measuring points in the center of the lake and on the Geneva side of the lake, as well as their evolution.


Since 1969, the quality of the waters of Lake Geneva and its catchment area has been monitored on a regular basis and for a wide range of parameters. Each year, CIPEL's scientific reports compile new results and provide an analysis of the situation.


The CIPEL dashboard groups together nearly 60 indicators providing valuable information on the state of the natural environment and the actions carried out on the CIPEL territory in response to its 2021-2030 action plan.
