  • 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.
  • Great little harbor area with many boats and restaurants all along the quay. I went when it was cool still but during the summer this is the place to be. A bit pricey so be ready to drop $$$$
  • 🇱🇧 Relaxing atmosphere : good for a good walk in downtown Beirut : Nice restaurants..⚘🐝
