Life under the sea is such a mysterious fascination and, under the beautiful blue-green surface of Lebanon’s sea, there is a colorful world that beats with life, mindful of their own business and survival, and mostly at peace, away from the politics of the land.

From playful sea turtles to magnificent jellyfish, Lionfish, and even sharks, here’s a small look into that diverse world that is very much part of Lebanon and that we don’t get to often see and admire.
