The Zaitunay Bay certainly exceeds all expectations and transcends the national borders to further polish Lebanon’s image and allow it to assume its rightful position as a touristic destination, but more importantly, as an exclusive and luxurious destination rivaling the best the world has to offer. Being the go-to place for all the Lebanese, Zaitunay Bay also inevitably is a prominent touristic destination. A must-see destination offering an array of various, cultural, leisure and social activities which finally brings back those faded photographs of Lebanon into the new millennium.

I walked through here from the corniche to beirut souks. Marina is full of yachts and cafes for the rich. Personally that's not me but I passed through and it's a pleasant area

If you ever wondered where to walk near the Sea and Yachts, Zaytouna is the place especially drinking a nice Rose wine and watching the sunset.

I went there with my girlfriends on a weekend and had a traditional lebanese breakfast (labneh, zaatar, manaeesh) in one of the restaurants there. The bay is lovely with a nice promenade to walk and enjoy the sight of extravagant yachts parked in the marina. Very relaxing and enjoyable place.

This is a ridiculously overpriced place and it has nothing beautiful to offer. People just go there to be "seen" and take selfies. There are many places and restaurant that are far more better in everything and are less expensive all over Lebanon. Don't go there.

Good place for an afternoon coffee or a little walk by the boats. Restaurants are expensive as compared to other places; but if you are visiting Beirut try to stop by this place.

Zaitunay Bay is just a name. It is just a place to pay and get nothing in reverse. You are just paying the cost of the high end decoration of the whole place. Starting from the parking fees and so on. I would not recommend this place to anybody...

A great place to go for a walk and/or enjoy a lovely meal, overlooking the nice view of the sea and yachts. Many dining options are available, with above average prices.
