  Beirut - the corniche at sunset
by Cham

Please please plesae... do not miss walking along the corniche.

it sounds like a weird tip but if you miss this then you'll miss out on one of the most outstanding features of beirut. Lined with palm trees the corniche is the place to be early evening when familys and friends gather to walk around, eat smoke water pipes and generally have fun. the best view of the sunsets are from here, but it's also a great place to buy some corn from one of the cart sellers for a snack.

During the morning it is home to a lot of joggers... or people power walking... not sure how many people are actually doing it for the exercise though, it seems to be more of a social thing...

You will see a lot of people playing about on the rocks near water over the barrier and there are always people catching fish.

Address: beirut sea front
Directions: head north or west depending on where you are in beirut and keep going until the sea is the only thing stopping you going further
