Interactive beach map

Nearly 120 beaches border Lake Geneva. Discover the quality of the bathing water thanks to the map of the beaches of Lake Geneva, which is updated every year and available on the WebApp or can be ordered from the Secretariat.


This bulletin presents the measurement data for temperature, Secchi transparency, turbidity and chlorophyll a concentration recorded at the measurement points in the centre of the lake and in the small lake on the Geneva side, 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 on many parameters. The scientific reports of the CIPEL compile each year the new results and propose an analysis of the situation.


The CIPEL dashboard gathers nearly 60 indicators giving valuable information on the state of the natural environment and the actions carried out on the CIPEL territory to meet its 2021-2030 action plan.

ACTION PLAN 2021-2030

The 4th CIPEL action plan is articulated around three main strategic axes, 12 themes and 29 actions
