Based in the Middle East on the Mediterranean Sea, Lebanon’s neighbours include Syria and Israel.

Lebanon is a country of great beauty, and there is no finer example of this than its capital, Beirut, which for decades, was called the Paris of the Orient. Now, thanks to recent discoveries of significant oil and gas reserves, Lebanon is redeveloping Beirut and restoring her to her former glory.

Rent a bike, and tour the National Museum, and rejuvenated colonial relics downtown on Sundays, when cars are not permitted. Marvel at the natural rock arches of Pigeon Rocks, just in front of the Corniche. History buffs will want to take day trips to visit ancient archaeological sites at Baalbek,and Kozhaya.

At least four to eight weeks prior to your planned departure for Lebanon, plan a visit to our Travel Health Clinic, to make doubly sure that you will be completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need to stay healthy on and after your trip to Lebanon.

Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again.

Further Travel Health Advice for Lebanon

Summer days in Lebanon are hot and dry, and temperatures can rise to 30-32. But if you visit in Spring, you will find a very comfortable, Mediterranean climate. If you are at the beach, or touring Beirut in summer, apply sunblock liberally and often. While touring, drink lots of bottled water, and other fluids.

Don’t risk drinking local water when travelling. Use only bottled, purified drinking water, and use it also bottled water for brushing your teeth, no matter which area you visit. Avoid ice cubes, and fountain drinks.

Lebanon is world famous for its wonderful cuisine, and it’s not surprising that many Middle Eastern countries have adopted Lebanese dishes as their own. Lebanon produces an abundance of vegetables and herbs, which are used creatively and liberally. Coriander, parsley, and mint add their unique flavour to most dishes.

Grilled meats and fish, chicken or lamb shawarma are mainstays, but the variety of ingredients available in Lebanon make each meal a discovery. One of the most memorable is the traditional Meze, an assortment of over 40 small dishes served with Arak, an aged wine spiced with anise. Lebanon produces some excellent wines to enjoy with its fabulous cuisine.

Health care services in Lebanon are very good, and hospitals are well equipped, but care is expensive, so it is vital that you arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need. ATMs are available throughout cities and resorts.

Protect yourself, and your family, with adequate travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any unusual activities.
