Everybody loves a day well spent at the beach, and the good news is you don’t really need to break the bank to enjoy your time! Here are our top five picks for free or cheap beaches from all around Lebanon.

1. Tyre (Sour) Coast

This is, without a doubt, the most perfect beach in Lebanon. The coast is gorgeous and sandy, the water is perfect and clean, and the administration is extremely friendly and organized. Though it may be a little bit far from Beirut, it is well worth the drive. Head down there on a sunny morning to be met with golden sand and colorful umbrellas, the best part? There is no entrance fee, it’s free! You just pay for what you order drinks/food wise.

Don’t forget to eat at the restaurant; time it right and you get to enjoy your deliciously fresh seafood with a killer view of the beach at sunset.

4. Benny Beach

Located in Chekka, in the North of Lebanon, this beach is somewhat of a hidden gem. The entrance fees are extremely low (10,000 LL for adults; 5,000 for children,) and the coast is sandy and gorgeous. It is a terrific place to spend some low-key beach time with your friends and family.

5. White Beach

As the name suggests, White Beach has a gorgeous white sandy coast. Located in Batroun, this local treasure is clean, relaxed, and doesn’t overcrowd. The entrance fee is low (around 10,000 L.L) and there is a restaurant so you can enjoy a lunch during your day at the beach.
