PHOTOS: The south of Lebanon has definitely had its share of regional problems and is often associated with occupation and political tension. But when you focus only on the negatives, the positives become overshadowed. So for us on a weekend getaway, it’s simply a historical beach paradise with friendly and welcoming people. Here is how we experience Sur (Tyre), Lebanon’s ancient coastal town and Phoenician Harbor.
