Park
“This is the largest wetland conservation reserve in the entire country. It is home to the largest collection of birds in their natural habitat. The most iconic of which are the flamingos that come wandering to the birdwatching posts during feeding times! Entrance is completely free and it is an amazing experience for all bird lovers!”

“There are a number of 'Wafi Gourmets' branches, but this is the first and in my opinion the best. They do a daily dish - closest thing to home cooked Lebanese lunch. Also, usual grills & mezze ”
