A lot of different sports can be practiced in Lebanon... You can enjoy through the year several sports from the water sports to the wintersports such as hiking, excursions, river running, fluvial trips, golf, horseriding, bird watching, mountain biking, snow sports, tennis, surfing, paragliding, sea fishing...

Lebanon has four Golf courses, the best and most popular of which is the "Golf Club of Lebanon". Situated on the outskirts of Beirut, the club offers an 18-hole 72 par course, with scenic views of the mountains on one side and the Mediterranean sea on the other. The club offers guest membership to visitors. The course is playable all year.

Scuba diving and snorkelling are available. The waters near the ancient city of Tyre offer some interesting underwater archaelogical ruins, which divers may explore. Swimming is generally popular and many beaches offer full facilities, with guest memberships and freshwater pools provided to supplement the sea. Several private beach clubs are available along Lebanon's coast.

Other watersports that can be practiced in Lebanon include water-skiing and sailing. Boats may be rented by anglers along the coast, but most local anglers prefer to fish in the deep waters by the shore. Separately, there are several water parks which are popular venues for the younger generation. "Watergate" is one of the newest water park and covers more than 20000 sq m2 in Dbayeh.

Despite its Mediterranean setting, skiing is possible in Lebanon and is actually very popular. The various mountain resorts offer excellent accommodation and different facilities. It is the only country where you can ski in the morning and go to the beach in the afternoon. In addition to skiing, skidoos can be hired at most resorts and for more excitement, snowboarding should not be missed. Six well-equipped winter resorts are at your disposition today thanks to the enormous efforts that have been made by Lebanon's Ski Federation: the Cedars, Faraya, Faqra, Zaarour, Qanat Bakish and Laqlouk. Faqra is one of the world's first private ski resorts...

Moreover, there is a wide selection of tennis courts in major towns and resorts. Horseriding is also popular, and Lebanons Equestrian Federation now includes six riding clubs with excellent Arab horses available.
