This is a clean and gorgeous beach and it’s in Lebanon 🙂
Back in 2013, we were warned that Lebanese beaches are no longer safe for swimming and that samples collected from several beaches came back borderline toxic. Three years later and after an 8-month long garbage crisis, we are being warned again that it’s not safe to go to the beach this summer in Lebanon.
I think we are all aware at this point that our beaches are not the cleanest but to ask people not to swim at all based on a statement by a local NGO and few words from a doctor is unprofessional and unacceptable! I’m sure some of our beaches are dirty but there are still clean spots in Lebanon and these are the ones that we should highlight. No one is going to swim in Karantina, Costa Brava or Zalka. Most of the beaches North of Lebanon are clean and Tyr’s beaches are quite amazing!
On another note, what is this NGO (Green Globe) doing to clean these beaches? This is the first time I hear about it to be honest.
