  • the corniche in beirut is nice same for any other city on the mediterranean, you can enjoy the walk in the morning/evening and have a coffee there 
  • The Manara Cornice in Beirut is a long and nice place to take a walk and unwind. You get to see a lot of things, meet a lot of people and have a great sea view. 
  • You must come and stroll on the corniche to take in the experience of what old Beirut was. Sea views.

  • Smelly, garbage from inconsiderate pedestrians throwing seeds and trash on the floor. People regularly play music from cars parked on the sidewalk with make shift picnics. Always find people smoking hookah or drinking in public with little consequence especially at night. No lights at night so enjoy walking in the darkness with creepy people with zero to little security. Parking can be impossible. Can be 5/5 but only if you go early morning to 12pm to avoid crowds, great with bikes when you go early enough. Otherwise dont go.
  • The best place in the world to visit if you're dying.
  • This is not the corniche and Google maps is not the only that got t wrong!
  • Loooosseeerrrrrrr
