Trip Planner:   Middle East  /  Lebanon  /  Beirut  /  Zaitunay Bay

Zaitunay Bay, Beirut

4.1
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.

  • Great place to watch the sunset or have a meal. Located right on the water, there’s a boardwalk and seating, plus a huge array of restaurants and cafes which include fastfood as well as formal options. Bring some bread if you want to feed the fish located right in the marina. Parking facilities are available there but it can be pretty expensive if you’re staying several hours.
  • The place is very beautiful. There is a large parking space. It has the best restaurants in the country. And I would recommend you to go with friends or family or a partner on a sunny spring day or summer.
  • A must on a visit to Beirut on a sunny day. Has a collection of restaurants overlooking the marina with a decent selection of food types and coffee shops. If you have time to kill there is the water sports center where you can rent a boat or go fishing or even diving. There is also a small hotel in the yacht club at one end of the marina.
  • Beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea. There are 6-8 restaurants from which to choose, from hamburgers to pasta to Chinese to frozen shakes. There are two American chain places. A walk on the boardwalk after a meal will hit the spot. One can admire the boats and yachts moored at the marina and yacht club.
  • It is a very nice place to visit. Has a lot of restaurants options by the Sea port for fancy yaghts to park. Food is delicious. It is a bit overpriced like most Beirut restaurants. I would have gave it 5 stars if the food price was reasonable compared to national average income. Definitely must visit and check it out to judge by yourself.
