Play beach football, beach volleyball or beach tennis with your friends at this well-maintained sand-sports centre. Diving into the sand is great fun. If you would rather take things easy, though, why not try your hand at pétanque. There are plenty of events on offer in the summer months, explore the complete programme.
The multipurpose Spiez Beach Arena is nestled in picturesque Spiez Bay, right beside the deep-blue Lake Thun. Three beach volleyball pitches and a large beach football pitch are available from April to October. You can visit the sand-sports centre from spring to autumn and use the quartz-sand playing fields free of charge. Balls are for hire from the info-point in Spiez Bay. The effort required to play on the sand is pure fun, while a jump into refreshing Lake Thun after winning a game is even better. Looking for a way to relax in the wonderful atmosphere of this idyllic bay? Pétanque (the French version of the Italian Boccia) is a slow-paced but exciting game for young and old. Try and get your balls as close as possible to the target ball to win the game. During the warmer months, the Beach Arena is transformed into a meeting place for visitors and locals alike, with numerous sporting and cultural events throughout the summer season. Discover the varied events programme.
