Hot season in Lebanon is actually hot but not as hot as in other countries of Near East. Starting from June water of the Mediterranean Sea warms up from 25 °C to 29 °C at August which are perfect conditions for swimming and related types of leisure. Here is the best way to enjoy a Lebanese summer.
Go to the beach
From the very south to the tip of the north, the coastline of Lebanon extends 225 km across its Western side.
With the white sands of Tyre, rocky resorts of Batroun, and crystal blue waters near Tripoli, Lebanon has countless beaches and resorts, both public and private, all but made for you to spend your summer enjoying.
Swim, surf, get a nice tan, dive off a cliff, dine in seafood restaurants, and make sure to take advantage of the sparkling Mediterranean Sea you have at your feet.
Check Out Faqra Natural Bridge
Faqra Natural Bridge is a spectacular work of nature. With an arch opening of 38 meters and an elevation of 58 meters, this natural landmark is not to be missed!
A Day in Batroun
Just about an hour’s drive from the capital city of Beirut, Batroun is a coastal city in northern Lebanon and one of the oldest cities in the world.
The Old Souk is where old traditions remain. The elder folks display produces to sell each morning, with authentic delicious eateries around every corner. Pop in any shop where the locals are and you won’t go wrong.
Batroun is a major tourist destination in North Lebanon. The town boasts historic Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches. The town is also a major beach resort with a vibrant nightlife that includes pubs and nightclubs.
Because the city of Lebanon is so small, taking a simple stroll on its most famous streets may not be the most unusual thing to do in Beirut. Take a tour of the campus of the American University of Beirut, where you will find the archaeological museum that houses brilliant treasures from the country’s storied past.
Also, you will find the best mezze at the Mezyan and T Marbouta that are within walking distance. Mezyan also has live Arabic music and a dinner date there is a good idea.
Mar Mikhael – Enjoy The Nightlife
It is unusual to find a pub and club scene in an Arabic city, but the Beirut districts of Gemmayzeh, Armenia Street, Mar Mikhael, and Gouraud Street are a lively celebration of the hipster culture in Lebanon and offer the best things to do in Beirut at night.
There is a ton of graffiti here, which is street art for a lot of people, so bring your camera along for the best snaps of the most unusual art you will find. The St. Nicholas Stairs is surrounded by old mansions and is the site of the open air exhibitions during the Arabic summer.
