“A lovely Stretch by the sea”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

The Corniche is where you find all kinds of people. The rich and the poor. walking or jogging. There are side walk coffee venders, or carts with hot boiling corn ears, and very nice local restaurants with very fresh fish. You can also find very good sea-food restaurants that offer a variety of meals.

Seriously, this is one of the most picturesque places I have ever visited. Make sure you see it at sunset, it will change your view on life forever!

“That's it?”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

From the guide books I thought this would be alive with people and food craft, but really it was just a walk along the city's waterfront. It was certainly nice to see, but I expected more. The fact that I visited in August might have something to do with its emptiness.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

It's really lovely down around here, unfortunately it was too hot for us to really enjoy it. I would love to go back again and take my time strolling along here. Great views.

“My favorite place in Beirut!”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Go walking along the Corniche around 11pm on the weekend and witness the real life in Beirut! People enjoying themselves without the price of a bar or restaurant or hookah bar!
