The Zaitunay Bay certainly exceeds all expectations and transcends the national borders to further polish Lebanon’s image and allow it to assume its rightful position as a touristic destination, but more importantly, as an exclusive and luxurious destination rivaling the best the world has to offer. Being the go-to place for all the Lebanese, Zaitunay Bay also inevitably is a prominent touristic destination. A must-see destination offering an array of various, cultural, leisure and social activities which finally brings back those faded photographs of Lebanon into the new millennium.

Since Beirut doesn't have any parks this is a go-to place for people of all ages. Impressive collection of restaurants, although the one we tried last week (st. Elmo's) was terrible and the one we tried last night (P.F Chang's) was great. The yachts are fantastic.

While the coastline around Beirut tends to be a walled Corniche along rocky coastline, Zaintunay Bay has been developed from a simple marina into an enclave of style and elegance. You would not feel out of place in St Tropez, what with the trendy cafes and restaurants overlooking the Bay with luxury motor launches moored in style, sunlight sparkling off... More

If your in Beirut and have some free time to visit the sea side then you should pass by Zaytouna bay, nice place to have a walk with your partner, family or friends. Also, you can choose one of the many restaurants and coffee shops there to spend sometime in. At night it looks wonderful when looking at the surrounding... More
