Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Beirut

Aero Club
Whether you're a master of the skies or simply want to learn flying is a great way to see the sights. And with the airport so close to the centre of town it's practically a must.
Baalbeck Int’l Festival
The Baalbeck International Festival is the oldest and the most prestigious festival in the Middle East. 
Bamboo Bay
Just $10 gets you in to Bamboo Bay and access to golden sands, Jacuzzis, a pool and an outlet of La Posta. Looks like it's swim o'clock already.
Byblos Sur Mer
A five-day yoga retreat in the ancient port city of Byblos.
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.
Edde Sands
Everything you could want from a resort on the edge of the sea with multiple swimming pools bars and even DJs when night falls. Try your luck on a jet-ski or just sunbathe away the hours.
Essential Spa
Beirutis like to look good for the summer months which is why the city is brimming with spas and health clubs. Unfortunately there are no traditional hammams still operating so it's modern spa treatments all the way.
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.
Ksara Winery
Oenophilecognoscenti will be familiar with vintages created by Lebanese producers; Ksara is among the finest.
La Voile Bleue
Chill or party La Voile Bleue offers the best of both worlds with bars and pools and a typically beautiful Lebanese beach.
Lebanese Adventure
Gorgeous blue skies, warm Mediterranean waters and awe-inspiring mountain peaks make Lebanon a nature lover's paradise - so grab your hiking boots and get moving!
The Golf Club
Rather surprisingly, there is only one golf course in Beirut - especially given the high number of ex-pats who live here. The Golf Club of Lebanon is part of a country club-style complex offering argyle-clad golfers more than just gorgeous greens.
The Magnum Club
You'd think getting hold of some weaponry wouldn't be too tricky in Beirut but you'd be surprised. Besides it's all a lot safer and more controlled to head off to the range and learn how to master a handgun properly.
