#3 of 35 in Sightseeing in Beirut
Landmark Tourist Spot
Amble your way along the Mediterranean coast at The Corniche, a meandering promenade lined with leafy palms. Snaking 4.7 km (3 mi) along Beirut's central district coastline, the walkway provides vast seaside vistas and dramatic views of Mount Lebanon to the east. Let the scenery wash over, strolling among families, joggers, and local fishermen. Dotted with vendors offering tempting refreshments, the area remains ideal for grabbing a coffee or a snack while walking along the charming promenade.
