5 Swim in Naqoura

Lebanon Traveler - - FO­CUS ON -

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.
