The warm waters of the Mediterranean are a major draw for many visitors to Lebanon. There’s a truly huge number of ways to appreciate them, whether it be enjoying a coffee in a waterfront bistro, relishing the refreshing tang of salt as you explore one of the Lebanese coast’s many picturesque villages, or even soaring high above the waves in your very own airborne tour.
But when it comes to the sea, it can’t be denied that the best way to appreciate it is by partaking in a tried and tested pastime: messing around in boats. Luckily, a new site has been recently launched in order to help you do just that. www.lebanonboats.com offers visitors to Lebanon the chance to make the most of the country’s outstanding waters, whatever your personal preference.
The sleek curves of a motor boat are irresistible to most. Offering a luxurious experience, combined with the thrill of a powerful vehicle, nothing beats spending a day sunbathing on the back of one of these beautiful modern vessels, before speeding back to shore as the last rays glitter off the sea. Feeling the wind rushing through your hair and the gentle hiss of spray as you cut through the waves simply can’t be beaten.
For those who like to take it a little easier but also enjoy a little sport, a Lebanon fishing trip is the perfect option. While a respected and important occupation for hundreds of generations, fishing for fun is a great way to spend some time out on the waves and, of course, to have something to enjoy eating at the end of the day. The waters off the Lebanese coast are home to species including Porkfish, Redcoat Squirrelfish, Common Pandora, Red Mullet and Baracuda. All are delicious, but you have to catch them first!
If you have some experience under your belt, a Lebanon sailing excursion might be high up on your to-do list. The weather in Lebanon lends itself very well to filling sails, and with a recent boom in yachting drawing more people than ever to the waters just north of Beirut you’re sure to find something suitable, regardless of your level of expertise.
Alternatively, if the itinerary for your holiday in Lebanon doesn’t allow for much time on the coast, why not consider a spot of rafting on one of the Lebanon’s major rivers. This is an exciting and fun way to get your water fix, and one that isn’t to be missed out on.
If you have any sort of love for the sea or boats in general, you owe it to yourself to check out www.lebanonboats.com. Whatever the excuse, find a reason to get yourself on those Mediterranean waves as quickly as possible. You’ll thank us later!
