  • Really Nice atmosphere. Quiet in the weekdsys, but lots of energy in the weekend. prices in the restaurents can be a bit steep though.
  • Wonderful view by the sea...many cuisine choices...all are good restaurants...it's a nice area for walking too...usually crowded and quiet at the same time...it's highly recommended
  • A typical marina view. The place is a promenade of high end restaurants and parked yachts with chic people walking around and enjoying their time. I enjoyed it and would visit again
  • The marina is amongst the most expensive in the Mediterranean. Offering very basic services such as extremely overpriced electricity and water. I see no reason to stop you yacht in this marina except if you don't sail and want to boast being berthed there. Restaurants are average and overpriced and mostly empty during week days. The adjacent St Georges swimming pools are a bit odd.
  • Best outing location for Beirutians after the demise of the centre ville...great foods but shocking bills at Karam sur mer, at Babyl and at the Indian restaurant. The rest of the restaurants, especially the Boubes chain are good and reasonable.
