Walk along the Corniche from the top of the Pigeons Rock until Zaituna Bay. Along the way you'll find an entertainment park, ice cream shops, small restaurants, bike rental. A pretty nice place and long (2,5 KM).

A excellent place to have a long walk along a beautiful view of the sea. The sidewalks are wide enough but watch out for speeding bikes.

The Corniche is a classic location of this city, where locals will parade of an evening. It also gives you a fantastic view of some the Beirut coastline. BEWARE, trying to cross the main road to it is somewhat dangerous as the little green man...More
