Beaches and Seaside

With 225 km of Mediterranean coastline extending the entire length of the country from north to south, you'll find plenty of sun and sand in Lebanon. Beach season in Lebanon stretches from April to October, with sunny, dry weather and warm temperatures for swimming, sunbathing, and water sports. The coastline in Lebanon alternates from sandy to rocky beaches. Along the coast north of Beirut, the mountains descend sharply to the Mediterranean Sea. In the south, citrus groves and banana trees line the coast, giving way to some of the best-preserved sand beaches. Nature enthusiasts can explore the Mediterranean ecosystem at the Palm Islands Reserve, 5 km off the coast near Tripoli. Here you can observe Lebanon's coastal flora and fauna, including sea turtles, seals, and over 300 species of migratory birds. The beaches at the Tyre Coast Nature Reserve are also known for their rich marine and freshwater habitats. Good, inexpensive public beaches with clean water and basic facilities are located in Jbail (Byblos), Chikka (near Tripoli), Batroun, and south of Sour (Tyre). Adventure enthusiasts will find diving, waterskiing, sailing, windsurfing, jet skiing, paragliding, and much more along the coast. A 600 meter deep underwater valley runs from Beirut to the Bay of Jounieh, creating interesting rock formations for divers to explore. Another popular diving area is at Chikka (near Tripoli). Exploring the underwater ruins near Jbail (Byblos), Saida (Sidon), and Sour (Tyre) is another popular activity for divers and snorkelers. However, you are required to obtain a special permit to dive near archaeological sites. There are also several world-class shipwreck sites, including “le Souffleur” (a French submarine from World War II) near Khaldé. Lebanon also offers a number of freshwater activities, including rafting, kayaking, and canyoning. These are concentrated on the rivers Nahr Litani and Nahr Ibrahim.
