Known for being a troubled border town, Tyre or Sur will delight you with an unprecedented level of peace and calmness around. The gentle winds in the winter while walking along the least-cosmo looking Corniche still makes feel like going back and staring the vast Meditteranean from there.

It's a smiling, quite and interesting historic town that lies along the South Lebanon's most beautiful coastline. Its archaeological site is remarkable indeed, besides the souk, the old city, the fiscermen's harbor and an amazing beach make Tyre as a very precious Lebanese pearl.

I spend most of my summers in Tyre, i just love it, great beach, friendly people, all kind of restaurants and cafes on the corniche. You can go out after midnight and still find the corniche busy.

Tyre is one of my favorite cities in Lebanon. its is also one of the most reserved regions, as you can still see old stone houses by the sea, in addition to the Roman ruins that date up to 2500 years back. From Cola bridge, beirut, there are many buses that take you to Sur/Tyr for 5000 LBP only. There... More
