Bratislava-on-Sea

Every year hundreds of tonnes of sand are dropped on the banks of the Danube to give locals a taste of the beach. Tyršovo nábrežie, on the south bank facing the Old Town, is friendly, hot and crowded. Entry, hammocks, deckchairs, parasols and sports equipment are free, and there are cocktail bars, live music, table football, volleyball and snack bars.
