Lebanon climate overview

This small Mediterranean republic gained its independence from France during the Second World War but has since endured a civil war and intermittent conflicts with Israel. Despite this, Lebanon has become increasingly stable over the last 10 years and is slowly regaining its status as an Arab tourist destination.

The capital, Beirut, lies on the narrow coastal strip along the Mediterranean. It was badly damaged during the civil war and remains poor and overcrowded with polluted beaches.

Two mountain ranges run north-south along the length of the country. The Mount Lebanon Range is particularly beautiful with narrow gorges, lush green valleys and waterfalls. There are also modern ski resorts around Bcharre, set in spectacular winter scenery.

Between Lebanon's two mountain ranges lies the Bekaa Valley; a fertile and heavily cultivated region growing mainly wheat and citrus fruit. Within this valley lies the town of Baalbeck, which contains ancient Roman ruins; the Baalbeck acropolis is one of the largest in the world.

The sub-tropical climate has a hot and dry summer, and remains virtually cloud-free. The Mediterranean coast can become uncomfortably humid while mountain regions escape the worst of the summer heat. Temperatures are comfortable during the winter in the lowlands and cold in the mountains.

Frequent winter storms whistle in from the Mediterranean and bring plenty of cloud and rain during winter and autumn months with the heaviest rainfall from December to February. This falls as snow over the mountains, which can become very windy with high wind chill.
