Jounieh

To the north of Beirut lies the coastal city of Jounieh, known for its vibrant nightlife and gorgeous viewpoints.
Step off the beaten path and head to Bubbles Club for Divers and MACAM (Modern And Contemporary Art Museum). Popular historic sites such as Byblos Port and Byblos Castle are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Jounieh side-trips: Byblos (Roman Theater, Saint Charbel Tomb, &more), Kfardebian (Jisr el Hajar - Kfardebian Natural Bridge, Mzaar Kfardebian, &more) and Saint Charbel Statue (in Faraiya). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve, examine the collection at Hall of Fame, stroll around Byblos Public Park, and don't miss a visit to Old Souk.
