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.

On the shore of Libanon, Beiruth Marina is a quite place a bit expensive to have a drink or to get some food but forgotten or avoided by the citizen of the city, i think a place more likely visited by tourists. The area have to be taken in hand for more care and cleaning.

I have been there in the morning - midweek, so may it's nicer in summer over the weekends, for me it was not something new, but it was ok... there are many places & there is a nice view & it is the niche spot of Beirut.

And that all I can say... overrated. It could be a nice walk on the dock, if the weather is right, and maybe a nice meal in one of the restaurants if you're lucky enough to find a table, but that's all there is. And that's why I chose the title

Bit too modern and European to be considered anything special. Was expecting something different but all in all good restaurants and promanade

I had dinner at Zaitunay bay with a couple of friends. The place is beautiful, the atmosphere is very nice, and the restaurants are good, but the restaurants were all packed so we ended up waiting for 30 minutes to get a table, and the parking was so expensive !

Excellent sightseeing that you should visit, multiple restaurants and cafes alongside the beach, and you can enjoy the view of the yachts and people walking alongside the bay

Zaitunay Bay is a man mad bay by the sea. You will feel like you're in Europe or Dubai. Very beautiful especially for morning coffee and breakfast. Too artificial for my own taste but every Foreigner love it.

so this area was stolen by politicians (supposed to be for the public and not commercial) and they set up cafes & restaurants.. chill, but expensive, and nothing happens there..
