5 Swim in Naqoura
At the southern-most tip of Lebanon’s coastline is Naqoura; a small city perhaps best known as the headquar ters of the United Nations Inter im Force In Lebanon (UNIFIL), but also character ized by its r ich green valleys, agr icultural fields and orchards of banana trees. Few know about its stunning rocky coastal scener y and clear waters, but as the last point to swim within Lebanese waters, ever y summer families from the city gather to picnic on its clif fs and rocks that drop away into the sea, smoke narguileh and bathe in its shallow turquoise blue shores. Br ing a picnic and BBQ and buy some fish from one of the local fishermen, then find a secluded spot on the pebble beach or rocks and settle in for a tranquil af ternoon.
