Nobody can resist a good sunset view, especially in summer. Roxane Fersane, chief concierge and guest experience manager of the Four Seasons Hotel Beirut, gives her top tips on where to watch the sun go down across Lebanon.
Roxane says: “Sundown is such a beautiful time of day, and Lebanon is blessed with magnificent mountains and a shimmering coastline that make the experience all the more magical. Whether you’re alone, with friends or with family, you can find the perfect spot to admire the candy pink skies and celebrate the end of another day.”
