Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Beirut

Atlas Beach
Atlas Beach is for those who prefer a quieter beach side experience with a distinct lack of the drone of jet skis and nattering. On the other hand also lacks some of the facilities of other beaches.
Beirut by Bike
Cycling in Beirut can be somewhat problematic - the problem being the insanely dangerous and blinkered driving style of most Lebanese. But if you can get up to er speed on the principles of survival here then it's a great way to see the city.
Cyclamen
Not just any bike ride Cyclamen will take you into the mountains for a real saddle-borne experience taking in the natural beauty of Lebanon while working those thighs.
Esprit Nomade
A hiking trip available to people of all abilities and a fantastic way to see some of the sights around Beirut from salt marshes to historical ruins. Bring your hiking shoes!
Exit to Nature
The white and wonderful world of snow-based activities awaits you at Exit to Nature who will take you into the mountains for a day out.
La Reserve
Each and every outdoor activity you could ever want to do are available in the Afqa Reserve from caving to parasailing. Stay for a while and try them all.
Sporting Club
Sporting might not look like much - it's very difficult to see the beauty in concrete - but the resort is one of the best and well worth going to if only to try and parse out its appeal.
Tyre Public Beach
A simply beautiful beach close to the city's ruins which include Alexander the Great's monumental Arch to make a relaxing and culturally stimulating day trip.
