Sip rosé with your feet in the sand
Do you do you … A little air of Saint-Tropez blows through Levallois-Perret with a new edition of Polpo Plage. Fine sand, chic deckchairs and rosé signed #Lou by Peyrassol, the glam straw hut spirit is waiting for you at the end of the week for seafood aperitifs with your feet in the water (Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 5 p.m. to midnight).
The extra thing ? Relaxing atmosphere on Sunday, with two-seater deckchairs to be squatted non-stop from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m.

A beach club like in Tulum
Step out of your prettiest bikini, it's now or never. La Beach Parisienne tumbles at the Chalet du Lac until the end of September with its 220 tonnes of white sand over 1,000 m2 for sea, sex and sun days in the Bois de Vincennes. Deckchair or sunbed? You choose. Between a pétanque tournament and a game of beach volleyball, let yourself be tempted by a burger, a salmon tataki or a healthy salad with a refreshing cocktail. A word of advice, don't forget the sunscreen.

A 100% caliente fiesta
Bim, the temperature goes up a notch. This summer, the Parc Floral welcomes La Bamba, a new joyfully festive place in the Bois de Vincennes imagined by the Jardin Suspendu troupe. As a result, the Pavillon Chesnaie du Roy is transformed into a Latino El Dorado with a fun program: entertainment, dj sets, live concerts ... not to mention the relaxation area for a crazy golden hour aperitif under the umbrellas (pitcher cocktail, € 20 the 5L). From 6 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The extra thing ? La Bamba is also a crazy food court with Cantina's empanadas and charcoal burger, but also tapas, poke bowls and seafood.
Entrance to the Parc Floral 2, 50 €. Burger € 12. La Bamba Pavillon Chesnaie du Roy, 102 route de la Pyramide Paris 12th arrondissement.
Lunch by the pool
With its stylish beach house decor, the Splash has nothing to envy the trendy beach restaurants of the Côte d'Azur. The height of cool, the establishment nestled in Asnières facing the Seine, has a sublime and luxurious swimming pool by which you can have lunch or dinner. On the menu, burratina tomatoes, pieces of brazier beef (the competition BBQ) and citrus baba. Unfortunately swimming is not allowed, but nobody will tell you anything, if you just soak your feet!
The extra thing ? The Splash has taken over the neighboring barge with deckchairs, just to bask in peace.
Starter, main course, dessert € 39.90. Bistrot Splash Port Van Gogh, 92600 Asnières sur Seine (under the Clichy bridge).

Escape to an island
Release the moorings, direction the Chalet des Îles. This true historical gem, a gift from Napoleon III to Empress Eugenie, sits discreetly on one of the two islands in the lower lake of Bois de Boulogne. The only way to get there is to take the boat shuttle. The bar opens from 4 p.m., take the opportunity to sip a Moscow Mule or a mocktail sunk in the deckchairs, in the shade of birch and cypress trees.
The extra thing ? Rent a boat to set sail on the water (8 € for half an hour).
Cocktail € 13-16. Bois de Boulogne, Pier of the Chalet des Îles , Porte de la Muette, Lower lake belt, Paris 16th .
