Byblos, or Jbeil, is the first city of Phoenicia, an ancient civilization. It is one of the 20 oldest cities in the world

The city has been continuously inhabited ever since it has been established in 5,000 B.C. The first inscription in the alphabet was found on the sarcophagus of Ahiram who was the king of Byblos!

If you’re looking for fun, hit Jbeil’s public beach which is near historic sites, cozy cafés, and seaside restaurants!

Palm Islands are three islands that are located 5.5 kilometers to the northwest of El Mina, . This reserve is the home of the endangered loggerhead turtle and 156 species of birds.

It is also rich in historical and archaeological sites such as the remains of a Crusader church, baths from the 13th century, and an old salt evaporation pond. 

Condé Nast Traveler says that “this is the spot for those looking for peace and abundant nature.”

For chic beach clubs: Batroun

Batroun is one of the oldest cities in the world. The Phoenicians built a wall in the sea to protect themselves from tidal waves.

Condé Nast Traveler recommends you to try one of Batroun’s many beach clubs to really get into the city’s vibe.

For a city swim: Ramlet al-Baida,

Backed by modern towers, Ramlet al-Baida is ’s only public beach! It is always crowded, so if you need more calm and privacy, hit the city’s beach resorts!
