 Additional Information

Jonas Beach is a private resort. Owner (Nassif) is a real waterman.
If you come during winter, the resort is closed but he will let you in.
During summer, fees are 10 000 LL (6,5 $) but you get a parking space, a beach umbrella, armchairs, showers, cloakroom and access to a cheap restaurant.

From there, you can walk to the next spot (Galleon).

Atmosphere

When you are in Beirut check the swell size at ramlet el baydah (the beach close to the Summerland, south of Beirut).
Double this size and you get a figure of what you can expect at Jonas beach.

Definitively, this bay worth the trip from Beirut. If the swell is too small for surfing at Jonas, go to Phil and Did where the reef enhance the size of the waves (and it is public access).

General

One of the best private beach, French expats and beautiful local girls go there.
Walk 5 min north by the beach and have a drink at Bamboo bay resort. Even more beautiful girls.

I have seen Jonas with 3m waves … twice (within 2 years !). But it is often suitable for longboard.
Wind swells are the only thing that break here, and they last only a day or so.

If it is totally flat (quite often during summer) rent a perissoire. It is a sort of flat small boat. Fisherman were used to go out standing on it with a paddle.
