Enjoy some crazy cliff jumps and deep clean water.
Serjbeil is located in the Chouf district. It is about a 30minute drive from Beirut.
It is a relatively known spot in the area & is mostly known the waterfall spot there.
It is located deep in the valley. The river crossing & waterfall are simply stunning.
One can hike up & down the river stream (which is a bit challenging though), but it offers some great views.
The waterfall spot has several jumps varying from 3m up to 8m and the water is fairly deep for all sorts of jumps (sometimes there are branches floating in the water though, so make sure it's clear).
The water is super clean and the area is nice for a day's chill.
It can get a bit crowded on weekends though, specially Sundays.

The spot is mostly great for cliff jumps. One can jump directly from the waterfall down (which is about 5m high).
There are few other ledges around the waterfall that can vary from 3m to 8m for jumps.
There's also a cool tree suspended over the river which can be climbed and jumped off.
You generally only need swimming stuff, and some snacks & water.
The place is worth spending few hours at, after which it's easy to go grab a bite in the area.
Before going to this trip, a visit to Baakline would be worth it for breakfast. One of the top “Foul and Hummus” breakfast restaurants in Lebanon is there, Snack Fakhreddine. It has been managed and operated by Ammo Baheej and his wife for more than fifty years. The couple creates unique plates prepared with love. Order foul, msabbaha and fatteh, enjoying every bite with a smile, and then head off to your adventure!
Deir El Qamar is relatively close, so it would be a great spot to finish off the day at.
It's a great historical town with some very interesting old castles and it's a good spot to get some food & drinks.
There is also Baadaran airport which is an interesting sight and has some stunning views.
