For a more energy-fueled activity, rent a bike from Bike Route, which is located on Batroun’s seaside road between White Beach and O’ Glacee. They have high quality mountain bikes including helmet and insurance. Doctor Bike is also available right after Batroun’s triangle roundabout.

5. Water activities extravaganza!

Because it’s located by the sea, Batroun is an ideal spot for all kinds of water activities like surfing, scuba diving, and windsurfing.

Wanting to experience a bit of tradition? Walk along the intricately pebbled streets of the old souk in Batroun, find a couple of catches, and to completely seize the day, you need to haggle with a shop owner for a kilo of apples.

7. Check out Our Lady of The Sea church

Being one of the most beautiful churches in Lebanon, you absolutely need to visit this old building located directly on the sea.

8. See the sea port

And of course, watch a sunset at Makaad el Mir (The Seat of The Prince).

9. Eat at Chez Maguy
