Tyre is the place that you can get all what you want. One of the best beaches in the middle east. Small city with big varaity of fast food restaurants and fine dinning restaurants. Good for shopping and family vacations.

So nice to visit a Unesco heritage site and see the historical ruins that lay in the south. Unencumbered, one can walk on the tiles and climb through the wall. The hippodrome and arches are impressive. Seeing it in low season meant we were the only tourists there E

Tyre, or Sour, is one of the most beautiful city in Lebanon; it is located in the south, around 1h30 from Beirut. but it is worth the trip. the sandy beach, the historical sites inside the city, the market, the delicious sea food. A MUST

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.
