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.

  • nice place to visit specially at night, there is a lot of choices to have dinner or just take a coffee or ice cream 
  • Overpriced parking, but the view is somehow relaxing. Ate at Pomodoro café & bar; worst Italian food ever. Fries for 8000 were too small and oily. Pizza crust was good, but the toppings were law quality. Marinara sauce taste like Lebanese sauce rouge.
  • I love coming here to walk. It's eery how close you are to Beirut and yet how disconnected you get from it when you walk to the other side of the walkway. It's calm, windy, and the air has that fresh feel that only the sea brings. It's secure, clean, and well lit, which makes it perfect for solo or group visits. I don't care too much about the restaurants, but the rest of the experience is nice. Tip: park on the street near Four Seasons hotel and pay through the Park Meter. It's usually cheaper than the underground parking.
  • High class bay mall. A bit expensive but enjoyable especially at sunset
  • A beautiful place to walk or relax. Contains some 4 to 5 star rated restaurants and a nice view of the sea.
  • Great space to hang out in with a good selection of restaurants. Better experience with good sunny weather
