Hamat is in Northern Lebanon. It is known for the monastery of Our Lady of Nourieh.
It is not too known for its shorelines and swimming, as there's not much easy beach access.
It's a generally rocky coast with crystal clear water.
It's a nice destination for a roadtrip due to the great picturesque coastline and great views, specially next to the seaside tunnel.

The spot shown here is not easily accessible and requires a 20-30min hike from the road.
Getting to the area is quite easy, simply head on the main highway to Chekka, and go down to the seaside road towards the tunnel.
It's recommended to get water & some snacks, since getting in/out of this spot is not too practical, and the nearest market would be at least 45min away.
One of the best and clearest beach spots in Lebanon. It's great for cliff jumping, snorkeling, spear fishing, & free diving.
