Ex­plor­ing Enfeh, Say­det Kaftoun and Bk­erzay and Baak­line

Lebanon Traveler - - CONTENT -

The north­ern coastal city Enfeh, a nar­row promon­tory shaped like a nose, of­fers arche­o­log­i­cal, his­tor­i­cal and re­li­gious sites. The Enfeh creek con­sists of an at­trac­tive rocky shore shaped in a per­fect semi-cir­cle. Those not charmed by the idea of a win­ter swim can fish with the lo­cals or rent a kayak (Nizard Dreik 03 330472). Sleep Stay overnight in the lo­cal house of Marie Josée and Lil­iane Ajoul’s (03 428421) or in a sea-front chalet at Drek’s ( Emm & Abou Khalil, 76 550841.) Eat En­joy fresh seafood and grilled fish at Enfeh creek. See Take an in-depth tour of the old city with a lo­cal guide (Ge­orges Sas­sine, 03 695181, or Hafez Jre­ich, 03 540215). Start at the old me­dieval church of Say­det El Rih where arche­o­log­i­cal ex­ca­va­tions re­cently took place. Con­tinue through Tah­tel Rih fish­ing port where im­pres­sive reser­voirs, canal­iza­tions, stair­ways, urns and trenches can be seen, hewn out of the rock. Fi­nally, tour through the an­cient churches lining Enfeh city’s old street.
