About 20 kilometers north of Beirut is the scenic coastal city of Jounieh where the mountain meets the Mediterranean Sea in a dazzling bay. The curved landscape is an iconic sight seemingly right in the center of Lebanon’s coast.
The city is full of activities to enjoy, from riding the téléphérique, or cable cart, to Harissa, to paragliding over the city, or enjoying a bit to eat on the coast or in one of the cafes overlooking the bay.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
