Sunset Hike - Anfeh Sunset Hike - Koura District

  • Join us for an unforgettable coastal hike, where you can witness the beauty of a summer sunset while exploring historical ruins.

    Our journey begins in Horshieh, where a serene path winding through olive groves leads to the charming Saidet el Khrayeb church. Continuing through the olive trees, we'll soon catch sight of the sparkling sea as we make our way to Anfeh, an ancient village steeped in history and dotted with ruins and caves.

    In Anfeh, you'll have the opportunity to explore a Byzantine church and other historical landmarks, including the Citadel of Anfeh, a remnant of the Crusader era with significant traces of earlier civilizations. From ancient graves to mosaic fragments, olive presses, and salt pans, the citadel offers a fascinating glimpse into the region's rich past, with its distinctive rock-cut trench (Al-Khandaq) adding to its allure.

    Our hike concludes in a naturally furnished cave, where we'll indulge in delicious manakish and hot tea prepared by a local resident. Please note: This hike is rated as an easy level, mainly traversing the narrow streets of Anfeh.
