This beach is renowned for its authentic Lebanese vibe, as well as for its unmatched simplicity that coincides with an equally unmatched sense of luxury. It’s nothing like the fancy beach resorts that Lebanon has so much of, it’s simple, comfortable, and unmistakably Lebanese. Unassuming as Sporting Club is, you can still treat yourself to a five-star seafood meal at the Feluka Restaurant upstairs, or enjoy a more laid back Lebanese meal at the poolside restaurant which overlooks the Mediterranean sea.
Its two large swimming pools are always set at the perfect temperature to cool you off on a scorching hot summer’s day, and the children’s pool is too. Best of all, if you get there early enough, you can grab yourself a lounge chair right at the point where the water meets the rocks, and you’ll literally feel like you’re lounging on top of the sea.
