This area is generally the most popular and crowded so make sure you get there early if you want a sunbed: the offer of sun loungers is actually large but the people are huge. If the Parc Rives de Seine it’s too crowded for you, then you might want to try the area in between Solférino And Invalides on the left bank, in 7th arrondissement of Paris: it is called Berges de Seine and extends from the area of the Eiffel Tower until the Musée d’Orsay. Here too there are deck chairs and sun loungers as well as picnic tables and ice cream stalls that go all the way up to Pont Alexandre III.
