Sunset Hike - Hamat Sunset Hike - Batroun District

  • The sunset will be beautiful and bright, and in its soft light we are going to hike on this day. We will start from Hamat and end at the coast.

    We will start the hike by a visit to Deir Saidet el Nourieh in Hamat. A walk to the sanctuary located on the steep cliff overlooking the sea is a must to see.

    Then we will continue on foot along a partially asphalted road with rarely any traffic until we reach the bifurcation leading the Deir Saidet el Horshieh. A narrow street, partially asphalted but among many trees, will take you to Saidet El Horshieh where you will be able to contemplate an awesome view of the sea beneath. Stony steps take you down to the shore, where you will walk among old salt refineries. Enjoy the fresh breeze of the sea and an unforgettable stroll along the shore.

    The end of the sunset will be a cozy get-together. We will all go to Batroun and spend memorable moments in a small restaurant by the shore. We will eat a delicious fish dinner; caught and prepared by local anglers, before going back to Beirut.
