The Lebanese Council for Scientific Research (CNRS) announced during a press conference two days ago a list of Lebanon’s most and least polluted beaches. Based on the report findings, 14 beaches were tested and found safe for swimming:
3- Jbeil (2 beaches)
11- Ain el Mraysse
As for Lebanon’s most polluted beaches, with some having alarming pollution rates:
1- Ramleh el Baida
9- Mina Tripoli
To be honest, I’m not really sure how trustworthy these studies are. How is it possible that Ain el Mraysse is considered safe for swimming while Manara & Ramlet el Baida aren’t? The only safe beaches I’d go to are the Tyre & Anfeh/Batroun/Okaibeh ones.
