Ramlet El Bayda Beirut – Unmissable sunsets

relaxing
Relaxing

The beauty of Ramlet El Bayda lies in its sunsets. Grab a coffee, grab a friend, grab a snack, and be amazed by the colors. You can also catch the same sunset from one of the many coffee shops in Raouche or Manara!

This may sound cheesy, but some sunsets are worth a drive. Luckily, Ramlet El Bayda public beach is nearby, and I can walk by the sea or watch the sunset in my car. Decades ago, Ramlet El Bayda was a popular destination as it was one of the few public beaches in Beirut; families would have their Sunday picnics, and friends would go in groups to swim.

In the past few years, this public space has become less of a swimming spot and more of a walking spot, with many people getting in their morning or evening steps by the corniche. Ramlet El Bayda extends all the way into Raouche, then Manara, then over to Saint George and Beirut Waterfront.

But the beauty of Ramlet El Bayda lies in its sunsets. Grab a coffee, grab a friend, grab a snack, and be amazed by the colors. You can also catch the same sunset from one of the many coffee shops in Raouche or Manara!
