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.

Great view with good choice of restaurants.

Great place to spend sometime, go for a walk and admire the tall bulidings then have a meal outdoors while enjoying the view.

As the tittle says; it's extremely tiny with a number of restaurants and coffee shops. Visit it while in Beirut but don't worry if you'll miss it!

If you are in Beirut, you have to drop by the Zaytouna .. Which is mainly called St. Georges area .. A long marina, around 1KM .. Yacht club side walk and restaurants and coffeshops on the other hand .. you can find Paul , Burger house, Seafood ...great places and a bit expensive but worth it for sure.

Not a great idea in August's humidity, but a nice place to go walk with kids. All restaurants/cafes have indoor and outdoor seating. Great location with very difficult to find parking (unless you valet).

It is a perfect place to walk, eat, chill, or just contemplate the sea. Beautiful place where you can spend nothing or afford an expensive drink and meal. A must visit either if you live in Lebanon or just a tourist.

It is simply a bay for the yachets to stay. It has a platform upon which you can walk on. It is glamorous at night with the lightings of the mountains. The weather is a little bit hot and humid. There are restaurants on the other side of the bay witha direct view to it. It is lovely and the... More
