“Ruined by High Rise Buildings”
Review of The Corniche

The Corniche
Ranked #12 of 106 things to do in Beirut
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 16, 2013

The Corniche, no doubt, once was a beautiful area is now a victim of building companies: there are high rise and luxury residential buildings, which are suffocating the Corniche coast. The buildings are chaotic and build with no consideration for the people or environment in mind. Unfortunately there is no way of going back and saving Te Corniche.

This noisy stretch of the coast in Beirut is a meeting place at night for the Lebanese to smoke and chat with their chairs from home. Lots of street sellers and noisy music. Lots of fun
