  • 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.
  • Lovely place to walk in the air, opens wide choice of restaurants and allow enjoying the view on the sea as well as being close from nice variety of Yachts...all this is in the heart of the city of Beirut...
  • Best place for a walk along the Beirut Marina pier and have an excellent meal outdoors with the sea breeze.
