This is definitively the best spot in Lebanon
during the biggest storms/swell since it's protected from the south
by the Point of Chekka. The spot is situated right after passing the tunnel of
Chekka (~50 km from Beirut). there's a long pier perpendicular to the
sandy beach. The point is on the left of the Pier.
Beautiful rights.The pictures unfortunately were taken
on the inside break....
Enjoy....
