The Corniche

The Corniche

Encircling Beirut's promontory, the Corniche is a seaside promenade and pedestrian walkway that constantly throngs with the bustle of daily life. Offering perfect views of the resplendent Mediterranean, and of towering Mount Lebanon to the east, the Corniche is extremely popular with walkers, joggers, bikers and people-watchers alike. A wonderful place to hang out in the sun and socialise, with push-cart vendors peddling tasty snacks and drinks, the Corniche is to Beirut what the Malecon is to Havana - nothing less than the city's beating heart. Fascinatingly, the Corniche also stands as testament to Lebanon's troubled past - with many of the palm trees lining the promenade still pock-marked with bullet-holes.
