“Posh part of town”
Review of Zaitunay Bay

Zaitunay Bay
Ranked #4 of 98 things to do in Beirut
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Posh part of town”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

right next to the four seasons hotel (1k usd a night place) there's a huge harbour of big boats where all the millionaires go. There's some posh places next to there to have a meal/ice cream also.

“Great for a Walk”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This bay is a luxurious location on Beirut Marina with fancy yachts and restaurant. It would be very nice and relaxing to enjoy a walk especially when the weather is clear. There are a lot of restaurants and cafes on the side but note that some need reservation and have limited serving times. Prices are more expensive compared to other areas in Beirut but in return most of the restaurants have excellent food and service with superior views.

“Great for a stroll”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

The place was newly done when I traveled to Beirut and I am glad my friends showed it to me. It had its own charm at night but I went back there daytime for a lunch with a friend and enjoyed the variety of the restaurants and cafes available. Highly recommend it for a stroll on a nice afternoon!

“expensive”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

it's a marina with lots of seeside restaurants, all expensive, but service and food is excellent - Cozmo cafe is great, so is Cro Magnon if you are in the mood for a steak (but be prepared to pay the price !)
