Day on the Beach - Tyre Tour - Tyre District

  • We are heading to the beautiful white sandy coast of Tyre. It is one of the most beautiful shores in Lebanon making it a perfect destination for water turtles to nest in summer season, the reason behind classifying part of the coast as a natural reserve in 1998.

    It comprises a sandy beach; fresh water springs and agricultural land. Water from the springs creates a mixed fresh water/salt water environment and the area is an important nesting site for sea turtles.

    Our day will start with a boat ride in the sea where you will see a small island facing Tyre. You will have a clear view of all the ancient ruins and the city from the coastal line.

    We will then do a small tour inside the beautiful old streets of Tyre and visit underground Roman ruins located directly under the Catholic Archdiocese of Tyre.

    Then we will head to “Ras el Ain” water springs which of renovated roman water basins that provides domestic water to the entire Tyre city and its surrounding villages and irrigates the agricultural lands of Ras El Ain. The remaining part of the water flows into the sea making an estuary; it is the mix of salt water with fresh water. The estuaries are the richest ecosystems in biodiversity.

    At the end of our educational tour, you will go to the sandy beach of Tyre to enjoy some relaxing moments in the sun, either swimming or watching the calm sea and the long white sandy beach.

    We will have lunch at the beach; Lebanese mezza, and fish, served with soft drinks.

    If we still have time, we will visit the village of Qana to see some very old encryptions.
