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.

  • The fact that the place is in the center of Beirut, the service is very bad, not clean and the people serving are very rude and doing their job Carelessly. Rating: 1/5  more »
  • Its good to visit this place at night, lovely view and really nice to go with friends. I really liked this part of Beirut.  more »
  • Empty in the morning but crowded in the afternoon and evening; it is an excellent place to walk, have a refreshment or dine; in a clean and pleasant environment. At the end is the Babel Bay restaurant, one of the best.

  • It’s a modern bay full of franchises. You can have coffee, dessert or even a very decent meal. I recommend going on a walk around the bay on a sunny warm day. Many come here for their regular workouts.
  • such a great place to visit.. very clean and luxurious and a proper place to see neat and clean side of Lebanon... the cafes there are not so affordable so you may just visit the bay and enjoy walking there with the nice view of the sea the yachts and the people. i highly recommend this place
  • Wonderful place. A reference to visit in Lebanon and Beirut - Modern and kid/couple/family/friends friendly. Possibility to eat in restaurants. Possibility also to have a picnic whilst sitting near the yachts. I recommend greatly
  • Its nicely done with the boardwalk, and you can look at all the moneyed boats sitting in the marina, but really it lacks all soul. Full of western brand restaurants and outlets. It think this is a real example of Beirut tying to modernise too fast with no thought to its culture or heritage. If Beirut continues to concrete over its heritage, there will be nothing left in 15 years time and it will become just another identikit city.
  • It is a cool place to chill and waste time; have a bite and walk around. But the public toilet is disgusting most of the time, and towards the end before Saint George yacht club, there is a very disgusting smell. I don't understand why no body works on fixing this issue. I am sure there is enough money to do that and work on upgrading and maintaining the whole strip on a regular basis.
