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 Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque. Kids will appreciate attractions like Beirut Souks and Mim Museum - Mineral Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Beirut side-trips: Shouf Cedars Reserve (in Barouk) and Tyre Beach (in Sur). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Hamra Street, take in the dramatic natural features at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche, make a trip to Corniche Beirut, and enjoy the sand and surf at Iris Beach Club Damour.
