Beirut is one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the Middle East. Perched on the eastern end of the Mediterranean, it benefits from a unique mixture or European, North African and Arab culture and history. Don’t think this is a city stuck in the past however; Beirut is a thriving, modern city that’s home to excellent facilities, major businesses and fantastic things to do. BlueBay is proud to be part of this great city and own and operate hotels in Beirut.

Things to do in Beirut
Beirut has a history that can rival any other city in the Middle East. Whether you’re a history buff seeking out ancient buildings, a foodie wanting to sample some legendary Lebanese food, a night owl who wants to find the best nightlife or a culture vulture seeing some of the world’s best art, Beirut has something for you.
You will be able to find authentic Lebanese Mezze on every street but the Souk el Tayeb farmers market, held every Saturday at the Beirut Souks on Trablos Street, downtown is particularly noteworthy. The Corniche is the perfect place to take an evening stroll and enjoy the city as the sun goes down before settling down to a meal and a drink.
Beirut is so full of history that the best way to experience it is through a walk on the streets. Many businesses and hotels in Beirut will be able to organise these. The Roman temple at Ballbek, known as the City of the Sun is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is worth the visit alone.
The weather in Beirut is classically Mediterranean with long, hot and dry summers and short, mild winters. Temperatures during the peak summer months of June, July and August can reach the mid 30s and there is almost zero rainfall. December, January and February experience the most rainfall.
