It’s hot. The concrete is almost melting. If you live in a city you’re probably longing for days at the beach. But how about I tell you that you don’t have to travel too far to get some sand and sun? Ok, so there’s no sea but two out of three ain’t bad. Here’s where you can hit the beach without leaving the city.
1. Paris Plages, Paris, France
This is probably one of the most famous urban beach projects in Europe, when every year from July to August part of the bank of River Seine is transformed in to a sandy haven in the middle of the bustling streets of central Paris. It’s an amazing mix of culture!
