If you visited the Corniche in the daytime, you might be forgiven for thinking that it was like any other seaside promenade the world over. But come at sunset, especially at the weekend and you’ll feel its magic, be bathed in the golden glow as the sky turns orange and purple and feel the warmth in the air.
It’s not just the balmy night but the joyful atmosphere, as young lovers gaze into their future, toddlers on tricycles pedal furiously watched by their smiling, head-scarfed mothers, older couples take a stroll and men try their hand at fishing from the rocks while their sons splash and clown around.
All of Beirut is out, just enjoying the atmosphere and hanging out with their friends. After our stroll, my friend and I took the lift to the top of the Gefinor hotel nearby and sipped our cocktail by the roof top pool, with a great view over the bay. A great end to a day in Beirut.
