Nice view of the sea. Very good for a walk on a not too warm day. Plenty of cafes along if you need a break

See the men fishing along the banks with a nice view of the city and mountains in the background. Great for a jog for miles if you are into that. And you will see all kinds of people in their natural environment enjoying the day.

We went along the corniche for a walk one morning. We walked from raouche to zaitouny Marina. Lots to see along the way and very refreshing walk too.

Beirut northern sea front, totaling 3 Km plus, add to it another 1Km the Zaytouna bay walk since it is a natural extension. it is the lungs of Beirut. Wheter you want to take a stroll, or run for exercise, it is the best place to do it, the sea to the north and some of the most prestigious buildings... More

It doesn't matter what time of day it is, walking along the Corniche is always nice. If the Mediterranean is swelling the waves here are amazing to watch and even occasionally spray water up onto the road!

A stroll along the Corniche in Beirut is a very enjoyable experience. It allows the visitor to tale in the sights and breezes of the Mediterranean Sea, including the rod fishermen, fishing from land and the swimmers enjoying the light waves. I saw the extraordinary sight of a man swimming with his pet turtle - both seemed to be enjoying... More
