well, let me be more specific: the ONLY public beach that's worth driving from Beirut to. Sur is a charming town and the public beach is a gem. you can bring your pets, cooler, your own food/drinks and spend the day on the sand, or you can choose to spend it at any one of the 50 "tents" that also serve food and drinks. some serve alcohol and others don't, but it's okay to drink on the beach (we're beer drinkers and we've never been hassled, unlike what most paranoid Lebanese people will tell you) but it's necessary (and generally logical, no?) that you remain respectful - i.e. no spring break behavior coz this is a family place and it's the south's largest public beach. it's a shame foreigners can't go past the final checkpoint because there are even more beautiful beaches further south, including a turtle sanctuary, but i guess that's one of the ONLY perks of being Lebanese :)
