Paragliding Over Jounieh

Jounieh, Lebanon

Starting 1,600 feet above sea level in the mountains of Harissa, paragliding over Jounieh, a Beirut suburb, offers fantastic views of the Mediterranean Sea and the bustling city. When you've come back down, enjoy earthly delights such as intense, sexy nightclubs and cultural finds such as cavernous bars lined up along the old stone souk. Here, stone-ceilinged venues spoil guests with lavish meze feasts and tropical drinks made with a bounty of local fruit.
