  • Nothing so special given the protection wall is hiding the see behind the yacht harbour. Plenty of cafes and restaurant but short walks. Location is lovely and the children enjoyed the scene of schools of fishes roaming the water.
  • One of my favorite places. It is a good place if you want to go for a jog or a walk. I personally prefer it at night with the lights reflecting on the water and the sight of the yachts is breathtaking! There are a variety of restaurants and cafes as well.
  • There is no place like Zaitunay Bay. The best restaurants. I had the best breakfast at Chez Paul, You will have the best lunch or dinner while enjoying the view of the sea. The service is exquisite. No other place in the world is like Beirut. Party never stops in Beirut .
  • It is a nice place to take a walk at night. It has different boats at the dock which gives it a more exciting touch. There are a lot of restaurants, as well as ranging from luxurious places to intermediate ones. It is quite soothing to walk by the water and relax at night.
  • It is always relaxing to sit out in the morning and spectacular company at night. Even in these heady times of resistance it only gets more full with life and to see the fisherman returning is splendid
