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. « less

One of the best outings in Beirut. The place is gorgeous with the restaurants and pubs. And the buildings in the background are amazing.

Zaytuna bay is a very nice marina where you can have a walk and have a meal be it a breaky, lunch or dinner. nice to walk babies in strollers. however, I find that it is not that secure for older kids, because there is no barrier separating the walking area from the dock...a child might trip and fall if...

A nice marina in Beirut :D You can say, it is Dubai's style. Nice fancy place, between the luxurious yachts and fancy buildings. Very expensive caffes but worth spending there the morning or the adternoon, but make sure that in the afternoon it will be much more crowded than in the morning.

Just like Downtown Beirut, this place is really fake. It looks like the typical scenery you would see in Dubai. Big fake fancy buildings, yachts near the deck, hotel chains, and overpriced cafes. I'd rather go to Gemmayzeh any day over this place. Zaytouna Bay has no soul.

Excellent place for a walk around sunset or at night, lots of very good restaurants and a very pleasant walk. You can also stop for a Hagen Daz ice cream to refresh during your walk. Strongly recommended
