It’s the top of the month, I’m virtually out of cash (as ordinary) however the climate is simply too good to not be on the seaside. I normally spend someplace between $50 and $70 on my seaside outings so I made a decision this time to limit myself to a 50,000 LBP ($33) price range that features breakfast, lunch, seaside entrance and drinks.
Right here’s what I did:
Head North/ Automotive Pool: [Trip Fuel Cost: Approximately 10,000 LL]
My favourite coasts to hit are Jbeil, Batroun and Chekka, primarily the North. We determined to go to Batroun since there are various seashores there that fluctuate between free entrance seashores (Kaptan, Pierre and Pals, O Glacee) and as much as 10,000 LL entrance charge (White Seashore, Oasis, Eleven Bay). We selected Eleven Bay this time and since I dwell in Jounieh which is closest to the seashores, my pals parked their automobiles at my place and we departed at 10:30 AM.
Man2oushe or Kaake for Breakfast: [Paid: 5,000LL]
There are many low-cost breakfast locations on the best way to Batroun. You will get Manakish from Wood Bakery, Chamsine, Moulin D’or and even drop by Furn el Sabaya in Amchit for some Bayd bi Awarma Manakish. You would additionally choose a Kaake from Abou Arab and even drop by Paul and get certainly one of their cheese or thyme baguettes (not the sandwiches).
We handed by Chamssine in Halat and every had a Man2oushe. I additionally bought juice and paid 5,000 LL.
Seashore Charges: Entrance + Parking + Drinks [Paid: 27,000 LL]
I paid three,000LL to park and the doorway charges which was 9,000 LL per particular person. I’m not the vin-rosé-at-the-beach kind of man so I ordered a few Almaza bottles, that are served with nuts, and paid 6,000LL for every. I additionally had a small bottle of water (they didn’t have giant bottles) for 1,000LL. You possibly can at all times attempt to sneak in a big bottle of water or a few small ones in your seaside bag.
Afternoon snack + Ice-cream: [Paid: 9,000 LL]
We left the seaside round four:00PM and had been ravenous so we dropped by Abou Arab and every had a Kaake. We normally used to go to Roadsters or Crepaway however our major choices are the smaller outlets identified for his or her scrumptious specialties corresponding to Abou Arab, Makhlouf, Diwan el Hachem and even Helado.
I had a Halloum and Kashkawan kaake with a small bottle of water for five,000LL then we headed to Helado for some scrumptious ice cream for four,000LL.
Racking up the tab
I paid a complete quantity of 41,000 LL excluding the fuel price, which is lower than the set price range and I’m positive I might have saved on a factor or two however there was no want to take action. While you have a look at the issues I’ve executed, you’ll notice that they’re really simply totally different decisions to what you could normally choose, but the identical consequence: stomach fed, alcohol consumed, tan obtained.
All in all, a enjoyable seaside day with pals and I paid lower than 33$ or 50,000 LL
