Beirut

Beirut ©
Sitting on the Mediterranean coast, Beirut, the country's capital and largest city, has plenty of appeal itself, as well as offering a convenient base for exploring the country's other sights and cities.
Get a sense of the local culture at National Museum of Beirut and Hamra Street. Kids will appreciate attractions like Beirut Souks and Mim Museum - Mineral Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Beirut side-trips: Tyre Beach (in Sur) and Shouf Cedars Reserve (in Barouk). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, pause for some photo ops at Jeita Grotto, and kick back and relax at LAZY B BEACH CLUB.

For reviews, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read our Beirut trip planner.
