Nestled between Cologny and Corsier, Collonge-Bellerive is the next water-facing municipality as we move away from the city centre. It is mainly made up of two key villages called Collonge and Vésenaz, as well as quaint little villages Bellerive, Saint Maurice and Repentance.
The village of Vésenaz sits at the entrance of Collonge-Bellerive and has received a lot of investment in recent years, including an underground tunnel to reduce car traffic through the village, as well as a large new Manor department store and some smaller supermarkets and facilities. Vésenaz also hosts its own small market on the first Thursday of every month where they welcome all types of 'creators' and food/beverage stands.
Collonge-Bellerive offers beautiful waterfront views, including a port and some small parks. It also has a beach called Savonnière Beach which the public can enjoy.
The municipality also boasts a small natural reserve called La Pointe à la Bise which is home to the last significant presence of lake reed in Geneva, and also represents one of the rare natural shores.
