Amchit is easily one of the most stunning coastal towns in Lebanon. Located around 40 km north of Beirut, a 40-minute ride (without traffic) from the capital city will land you in the gorgeous seaside retreat.
Here are 9 exciting places where you can hang out in Amchit.
#1 Jungle Beach
This hidden gem in Amchit is a true paradise on earth. You can enjoy refreshing drinks, great good, and lounge around all day long.
#2 June Beach House
This unique house of fun serves as a cozy beach bar and summer lounge. There’s great food, music, and service. While it’s on the beach you may want to dip in the pool since the beach is a bit rocky.
#3 Amchit Residence
This luxurious sea-front villa is the creation of award-winning architect Karim Nader and Blank Page Architects. In 2015, it was nominated for the Archmarathon Award in the international architecture contest. The dream is a must-see, especially for design lovers.
#4 Camping Les Colombes
Resort and Camping Les Colombes offers all types of accommodation from a luxurious rooftop suite with a pool and fancy rooms with jacuzzis to cabins and caravans.
#5 Mayse Kiosk
Yes, believe it or not, a corner roadside kiosk is on this list! Perched on a cliff, it’s a perfect place to grab a cup of tea, coffee, a beer, hookah, or whatever you want and just zone out. You won’t get enough of the views from this spot!
#6 Babel Bahr
Babel’s Amchit location serves up delicious seafood as well as authentic Lebanese meals. It’s typically a Sunday luncheon or date dinner spot with excellent service, sea views, and, of course, food.
#7 Mhanna Sur Mer
This is probably one of the most adored family restaurants in the Byblos district where you can have lunch with an impeccable view.
#8 Nasmet Ghinwa
Located near June Beach House, Nasmet Ghinwa is a relatively new Greece-themed seafood restaurant with excellent reviews so far. It seems like something not to miss!
At Nasmet Ghinwa, there’s a new seaside bar and lounge called Cantalo on a pier jutting out into the Mediterranean sea.
