Hermance is located north of Geneva. It is 30 minutes on Bus E. I mentioned in a previous post, it is a nice little village, beautiful and charming. Also, for guests, it can be a quick way to cross the border into France, as we did this spring.
It also has a really nice stone beach. I visited this summer with my friend San Francisco Gal. We made a picnic and enjoyed the sunshine.
A few things to know about the beach in Hermance:
-entry is 4 CHF for adults and 1 CHF for kids
-they have a snack shop, so you can purchase food & drinks (alternatively, we brought our own)
-its really windy since it is on a point…be prepared for temperatures cooler than Geneva
-its a rock beach as is common on Lake Geneva. Maybe bring water shoes if you plan to do a lot of walking/swimming.
-there are a lot of scuba divers. They have special scuba showers and it is common to witness scuba activity such as this:
-They have some ‘killer’ ducks. It started as innocent as them pecking at my big toe, but then they quickly took over our picnic. Have you ever seen anything like this?
