At sunset, locals like to walk along the seaside Cornish at Raouché. At Pigeon Rocks, the famous landmark here, many people come to meet and linger in the pleasant evening summertime air and to enjoy meals at cliff-side cafes. A sandy beach at the end of the Cornish is one of Lebanon's best - called Ramlet el Bayda or White Sand Beach.
The Al-Nouzha Turkish Bath in Basta Tahta, provides authentic scrubdowns. The sauna, steam room and massage facilities will refresh and amuse with casual (and discreet) glances between patrons. Men-only, except during Monday morning women's hours. The swimming pool at the St Georges Yacht Club is another popular gay favorite for cooling off, and sometimes (again discreetly) for getting hot.
