Day on the Beach - Tyre & Naqoura Day on the Beach - South District

  • Discover Tyre & Naqoura

    This trip is a mixture of cultural tour and relaxing day on the beach in South Lebanon.
    We will discover the old city of Tyre, the small seaside town of Naqoura and the sea coasts of both Tyre and Naqoura.

    Tyre is one of the most significant cities in Lebanon and among the most prosperous Phoenician cities in the Mediterranean. It has seen numerous civilizations and has a preserved old city called Al Medina facing the ancient Phoenician port, along with its splendid Coast Nature Reserve designated Ramsar Site and its largest sandy beach on the Lebanese coast.

    Our day starts with a breakfast stop. We continue with a tour inside the beautiful old city streets of Tyre and visit Barbour Workshop (the only traditional boat builder), the ancient churches and mosques, the Medieval Tower, the Corniche and old port where we will shortly meet a local community of fishermen.

    Then, by boat we visit a small island and see the city from the sea. While in the boat, the underwater archeological remains are seen clearly. Then, we continue to Naqoura.

    Naqoura is a small village near the occupied Palestinian borders. Occupied by the Israeli army until 2000, the region lost most of its population and almost became a “no-man’s land”. The village sits on top of a rocky cliff overlooking the sea, whose coast has remained in a pristine state.

    A free time will be spent at the Naqoura beach, to swim in wonderful crystal-clear waters.

    After that, we return to Tyre by boat to enjoy more recreational time at the sandy beach, either swimming, walking or watching the beautiful sea and the long white sandy beach.
    A tasty local lunch is offered at the beach; Lebanese mezza and fish as main dish.

    The last part of our trip will be in the Tyre Coast Nature Reserve.
