Zaitunay Bay, Beirut

4.2
Stroll along Zaitunay Bay, the quayside promenade in the capital's central district overflowing with restaurants, retail shops, and activities. Visitors and locals congregate at the waterside "urban beach" to shop, dine, visit the yacht club, and take advantage of the water sports, fishing, diving, and boating opportunities at the two activity centers in the area. Stop to eat at one of the international restaurant outlets or to try Lebanese and French cuisine at local restaurants while people-watching and taking in the view of the harbor.

    This neighborhood of Beirut has changed tremendously. Everything is different and very modern you can walk along the Bay on surfboards, while admiring the high-rise buildings in the very American style. Take a break at the Paul bakery, in terrace, for a breakfast in the face of the marina.

    The best and most beautiful place in all Lebanon, best view, best restaurant, best service ever. Can walk, make some exercises, have fun with family and friends. Very expensive restaurants but worth it.

    Very nice harbor with panoramic views of the sailboats and luxury yachts. You can either go for a walk and jogging or enjoy a fancy meal at one the great restaurants.

    Beautiful harbor area to walk and enjoy the views, restaurants, yachts and ocean views. Looking up at the big buildings makes you feel so small, but blessed to be able to experience the most amazing city ever! Zaitunay Bay is a spot to visit for sure while exploring lovely Lebanon.
