If one has no other choice, then Riviera Beach is fine; however do not expect it to compare to other beaches in Florida, for example. It is just a small beach on the lake that become packed with people in the summer... and with the...More

It's decent, the beach is clean and there are lifeguards. It's free after 5pm to get in (at which point I believe there are no longer lifeguards on duty, can't remember). If the weather is good it gets super overcrowded though.

Townspeople of Lake Geneva use this beach all summer long. There is an admission fee and the beach is crowded with both sand and grass. There is a life guard. Water is not warm until mid August but it is very popular.

Small beach. Didn't like that you couldn't bring a cooler with water, pop or snack. Had to buy everything. Water was nice but they have it roped off so close you really can't enjoy it

This little beach met our needs and was worth the price of admission. The restrooms were relatively clean (for beach restrooms). The sand was nice. The lake water was cool. And the floating docks were a treat for the kids. Centrally located in the cute...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
