When coming from Beirut driving on the old Sea highway u’ll reach this beach on ur entrance. In order to reach the spot by car u should take a hidden old gravel road, u can get there by car and 4x4 (if u wanna take this road it’s better to ask a local to show u the way it’s only 150 m long). What I suggest is to reach it through another Beach it’s called “Blue Bay” it’s easy to find with it’s parking lot it’s right on the road. The site is connected to Blue Bay & once ur at Blue Bay u can see the surf at “Colonel”. It’s a 5 minutes march and if want u can paddle to get there (u might be lucky and catch the big waves on ur way there.) Colonel is a rocky reef with big and fast waves. Some times u’ll have to chare it with the windsurfers who are common in Batroun. There’s also a lot of body borders.

Atmosphere

Because of it’s location next to Blue Bay (from where the surfers head out to the spot) & one of the most frequented beach in the area. u can always make ur grand entrance (there’s a lot of sexy Girls & Guys so u can always find ur self a nice companion for “SUPPORT”). Plus in order to keep the atmosphere between the Surfers & windsurfers High & competitive the local surfers formed 2 gangs the “Pirate” gang with it’s own tent “Headquarters” on one side of the beach & the “Hurricane gang on the other side also with there own “Headquarters”. These 2 gangs are so crazy and into surfing that sometime they head out to surf on Windsurfing boards plus some make there own hand made surfboards. Batroun in all is a beach town with its old souk and fishing port. In summer it’s packed with tourists, with its many night clubs & pubs it’s the night Capital of North Lebanon. It’s a very smooth and nice atmosphere. U can chill on the beach or go and hit the dance Flores of its many clubs. The people are nice u’ll find urself welcomed between them. Batroune mainly receive European tourist so u can always find urself in one of the groups. Let’s not forget that u can camp on the Golden sandy beach.
It's lebanon and every body know that lebanon have themost beautifull atmosphere ,so you would be pleased to come and see ..:):):)

It's the best surf they have for the area but definitely not great surfing. -

By anonymous , 15-05-2006

josh the greek - yeh mate, im a fully sick greek mate. And i came to lebanon in 2005, and mate this has got the ugliest chicks you'll ever see even though i did 100 of them. but the lebanonian spirit out in the water is fully sick. even though the surf sucks mate. Though the highlight of the trip was the fully sick mcdonalds burgers. (big mac all the way)
